Vins de Vienne Condrieu La Chambee 2017
*** Disclaimer: We have been completely selling out of everything lately, and FAST. Sorry about that. We are trying to buy as much as we can generally, but gotta tell ya -- today is a DOOZY and will also disappear in the blink of an eye. A true gem for your cellar and one of the scarcest wines on Earth. 96 POINTS--- collectors...go go go!
We’re not known for our shyness when it comes to unabashed enthusiasm and use of exclamation points. If we EVER had a wine to go stark-raving loony about it would be THIS. But, our will is strong. We will refrain.
Blah blah whatever. CONDRIEU!! 96 POINTS! And...AND...can you even GROK this price? Exceedingly rare, another mind-blowing point here is the relative price to some of the other legends...you have the world-class Condrieu La Doriane from Guigal, for example, at $140, and Georges Vernay’s bottling at $185...and...you saw our price, right?
OK. Hush. To the wine. Cue the angel song and hushed tones of awe. The concentration of flavor here is completely off the hook, a wine that makes you dizzy trying to take it all in. 100% Viognier and in the Top 3 from the tiny, hyper-high-quality 2017 vintage. Goodness. This is simply outrageous, what we are doing today. The insane levels of fruit and intense layers...well, read the review below. Amazing freshness and ultra-fine acidity backing up all this flavor...and the finish? Man, we can STILL taste it!! An incredible experience for those lucky enough to get some. While it lasts…! Wow!
Free ground shipping on 3 or more bottles.
“A large-scaled version, with dense and creamy layers of plantain, white peach, yellow apple and green melon flavors, backed by a kiss of warm brioche and a flash of verbena on the very long finish. Drink now through 2022. 672 cases made, 250 cases imported.”
