Condrieu, Guy Farge 2018
Delicately floral, with bright pineapple and apricot aromas. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with a mouth-coating, voluptuous texture that avoids seeming fat or heavy, then eases into a long, silky finish.
Why we love this:
Condrieu is known for being fat and voluptuous. This wine has all the texture and character but a fresh focused finish which makes it an absolute joy to drink.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
With 22 hectares of prime sites in the Northern Rhone, this family owned domaine is highly regarded.
Since Guy’s son Thomas has taken over the winemaking, the wines have even gone up a notch. Wine making is hands off and respectful of the fruit: whole bunch ferments, native yeasts, low extraction and are aging mostly in old barrels. These are wines worth seeking out.
