    Exquisitely fragrant with wonderful summer stone fruits and jasmine blossom this has sublime texture on the palate, plenty of vivid acidity and a truly lingering finish. Sipping this takes me to another place, somewhere peaceful and beautiful.

    What a gorgeous wine. Aromas of peaches, guavas, and a touch of pineapple melt onto the palate in an unparalleled, mouth watering texture that coats the taste buds. The finish is long and the wine slowly softens and only gets more interesting. This wine is undoubtedly the perfect go-to for curry, Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese foods. Also a great way to dress up taco night!

    Yves Cuilleron is one of the great vignerons of the northern Rhone with holdings in Cote-Rotie, St. Joseph, St. Peray and most importantly - Condrieu. With an unerring eye for detail, he composes not one but four different cuvees from the region. Many are afraid of Condrieu's perfumed and heady profile but Cuilleron keeps it all in balance with his south-south east facing slopes. The fruit intensity is evident but the higher elevation and cool nights keep the wines fresh and nervy (for Condrieu that is). The "La Petite Cote" bursts with aromas of honeysuckle, tangerine rind and bergamot tea making this a fleshy and supple Viognier poised for a whole host of food pairings. I love it with a salad of smoked salmon, fresh citrus and bitter greens. Or something heartier like a pork shoulder rubbed in African spices and roasted until its just falling apart. Fear not the flavor and intensity of Condrieu. In the hands of a master like Cuilleron, a deft touch delivers incredible drinking.
