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.
