Condrieu La Bonnette 2011 Rene Rostaing 75cl / 14%
A bottle of Condrieu La Bonnette 2011 from producer René Rostaing, who makes around 2800 to 3600 bottles per vintage of this cuvée.
Condrieu is the one of the most celebrated white wine appellations in the Rhône Valley, with Viognier the only permitted grape variety in the hilly, 200 hectare appellation. The wine style is generally described as textured and perfumed, with peachy characters.
'Oily, supple air of pear jam, white fruits jam, licorice, guava, then violet as it airs, also brioche bread present. The palate has a silken texture, with spice pockets along its path; the fruit is founded on pear, backed by touches of quince and violet as it travels. Serene, pretty classy wine... (drink) to 2020' John Livingstone-Learmonth
