100% Viognier from 35-year old vines on granitic south-east facing terraces. What a superstar.
30% new barrels, 30% second to fourth fill, and 60% in tank gives just the right level of creamy oak support and mid-palate density without squashing the vibrant, quartz-wrapped apricot and peach fruit, with its plumb-line core of fresh acidity.

Lionel Faury is determined to push his wines in to the front rank of the Northern Rhône’s top wines and this superb white is a shining example of him succeeding... 

The Condrieu “La Berne”, named after the previous owners of the land and refers to a specific plot where Lionel’s father first planted vines, is wonderfully elegant and linear whilst maintaining a richness in texture.
Pale straw in appearance, the nose of the wine is fresh with aromas of white peach and pear, and a hint of citrus and vanilla. The palate is dry but rich and rounded with apricot and subtle peach flavours supported by an elegant acidity that leads to a long finish.  Some minerality in the final, as well as a touch of citrus.
