Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2016 Condrieu Clos Chanson is also brilliant stuff and has a more exotic style with its citrus blossom, apricot, flowery incense, and tropical aromas and flavors. Deep, medium to full-bodied, thrillingly textured and balanced, it shows the pure, clean, elegant style of the vintage perfectly. It too is ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.

The 2016 Condrieu Clos Chanson is the only Condrieu Perret puts entirely in oak, but the wood doesn't show in the finished wine. From vines planted in 1960, this is floral and spicy on the nose, followed by a plump, medium to full-bodied palate that manages to be silky and rich while also being fresh and lively. Hints of chalk dust or crushed stone linger on the finish.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RP
(made from vines that were planted in 1960) Light bright yellow. Aromas of ripe nectarine, violet and honey, lifted by vibrant smoky mineral and ginger nuances. Broad and velvety on the palate, offering densely packed yet lively orchard and pit fruit and melon flavors that become smokier and spicier with air. The nectarine note comes back emphatically on the impressively long finish, which shows no rough edges.

Vinous Media | 94 VM
More concentration here and more complex fruit, ranging from apricots and peaches through to mango nuances. The palate has good flesh and is deep and compelling with a taut, composed finish. Drink or hold.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Rhone: While the Northern Rhone produces only about 5% of all wine coming out of the Rhone Valley, the quality of these bottles is not to be underestimated. The terroir in this region is heavenly for growing Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne or Rousanne - the only permitted grapes in the AOC. Picture this - the Rhone flows through the valley like an azure thread piercing the landscape, a reflection of the dreamy skies hovering above the vineyards, ready to produce rainfall at a moment's notice. The rocky soil of the steep, almost surreal hillsides provides a bountiful feast for the grapevine roots. The flavors and texture of Northern Rhone wines tell you everything you need to know as soon as your lips touch the elixir, like a whisper in the vigorous valley winds As per the Southern Rhone wine, it is like taking a plunge into a whirlpool of juicy flavor. Every sip explodes forward like a crashing tsunami, bathing your tastebuds in delicious aromas of prune, chocolate, grass, and black fruit. The wines are so compelling that it can be hard to drink them casually at a social event without getting lost in their intricate textures and emotional depths. Let's set sail together, and drink deep from these luxurious bottles with our friends and loved ones.
Type of Wine Rhone (Other): Rhone wines come from southern France, where a wide variety of grapes are cultivated. Some of the most commonly used varietals within this region are Syrah, Grenache Noir, Carignan, and Cinsaut for red wines, while white blends are typically based on Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Carignan Blanc, Grenache Blanc and others.
