2007 Pierre Jean Villa Condrieu, Northern Rhône
Master winemaker Pierre Jean Villa has once again fashioned a brilliant expression of Viognier from the fabled vines of Condrieu. Painstakingly sourced from the region's steep, granite-packed vineyards, this 100-case production captures the essence of the region. The exotic nose burst with aromas of lilies, minerals and shaved watermelon ice. The thick, viscous palate is loaded with ripe honeydew, white pepper spice and banana cream pie. Notes of almond oil, mango, and cardamom sustain the wine's exotic richness through the powerful finish.
