Christophe Pichon 2022 Viognier
The vines lie just to the north-west of Condrieu, planted on gentle granitic slopes. The wine is now made entirely in used barriques. The resulting wine has an unmistakable honied nose that melds with the oak as a hand fits in a glove. The glossy texture of the fruit could distract you from the wine’s surprising mineral charge. At 13% alcohol, it passes for moderate in today’s world. Exceptional class for the modest tariff.
