Condrieu L'Amaraze, Domaine Hervé Richard 2021
Type: White Wine
Wine Region: France
Tasting Notes: This is a dry white wine, full-bodied that reveals a fine, light yellow colour. The complex aromas are sustained in the mouth with a long finish of acacia honey, apricot, peach and violet flavours. This is a great expression of the grape variety Viognier.
This is a family estate in the small village of Chavanay located at the heart of the Pilat, at the top of the Rhône valley. Hervé and Marité Richard produce wines from 10 hectares of vines. The vineyards are all on very steep slopes, which cannot be worked mechanically so everything has to be done by hand… but what magnificent wines we get from them!
Suggested food and wine pairing: Poultry or fish in a saffron sauce, sea scallops.
