En Primeur Request

Blossomy flowers, fresh almond, a touch of coconut and bubble gum.  Medium-bodied, with enough of a mineral seam to bring freshness despite acidity on the low side.  A pleasing subtle bitter twinge on the finish.

      Tasting Notes
      André Perret’s Condrieu, Saint Joseph or varietal wines have flavours and aromas expressing the exceptional growing conditions of the vines and the meticulous attention given to the making of the wine.

      André Perret’s passion for vines made this Biology graduate return to this village, where he succeeded his father in 1982. The farmland, then mainly occupied by fruit-trees, was planted with vine-stocks and extended to 13 hectares. André is willing to preserve terroir and nature, even if this involves difficulties such as terrace cultivation of the vines on steep hillsides.

      He is also keen to avoid systematic treatments of his vines; pesticides are only used as and when required. Yields are controlled too, in order to achieve the quality and authenticity requirements that he himself has fixed.

      This Condrieu, with its pale yellow colour, is very aromatic and fresh,
      featuring peach and apricot flavours combined with a long finish.

      This wine is delicious to drink immediately after maturing, at a temperature of about 12-14 degrees.

      It is excellent as an aperitif and goes well with foie gras, seafood,
      green asparagus and with the famous goats cheese of Condrieu called “Rigottes”.

      "The tiny estate of André Perret continues to be one of my go-to estates for incredible Condrieu. While the Clos Chanson and Coteau du Chery are made in tiny quantities, don’t miss his classic Condrieu -- it’s much easier to find in the market place and is a terrific bottle of wine."
      (Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate #222, December 2015)
