50% Marsanne and 50% Roussanne. Intense nose of Meyer lemon, green apple and white peach and a suave vanilla undertone. Juicy, pure and focused on the palate, offering pliant orchard and pit fruit and honeysuckle flavours that pick up a hint of fennel with air. Rich but lively wine, showing excellent power minerality with a lingering floral finish.

François Villard trained as a chef, before becoming a sommelier. It was after tasting a Condrieu in 1987 that he became inspired to make his own wine and he planted his first vines in 1989. He now owns 26 hectares of vines and makes a variety of wines from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, St. Joseph and St. Peray, including many single vineyard bottlings. His Condrieus are among the finest in the appellation, fermented and aged in temperature controlled new oak barrels, often from very ripe, lightly botrytised fruit.

Very powerful and full wine
