Region: Condrieu, Rhone Valley, France
Producer: Domaine Yves Cuilleron
Type: White Wine
From a single plot of the hillside of "Vernon", which is one of the most famous places-dits of Condrieu.
There is a complex, refined wine with a nose of dried fruits, apricots, hints of honey and candied orange peel, and notes of toasted almonds thanks to delicate oaky inflection. On the palate: balanced and fleshy, with attractive powerful length and a subtle, thirst-quenching bitterness on the finish.
Pairing: Pan-fried foie gras, cold (e.g. millefeuille of spice bread with foie gras and apple)
