Condrieu 'Domaine des Grands Amandiers', Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine

Condrieu 'Domaine des Grands Amandiers', Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine
  • Gorgeously terraced vineyards on a dramatically steep hillside with serious winds that allow for a slower, more balanced maturation of Viognier. Picked almost 2 weeks earlier than the rest of the appellation, this is without doubt the freshest and most mineral Condrieu made.
  • Biodynamically farmed
  • 25+ year old vines planted on south-facing slopes.
  • Very low yields of 20 hl/ha
  • Aged in 55% French oak (5% new), 25% small concrete eggs, and 20% stainless steel tank
