Julien Pilon Condrieu vernon, 2016 - 750ml

Julien Pilon

Variety(ies): Viognier

From the finest Viognier vineyard site in the Northern Rhone on the southern end of the village of Condrieu.  Julien's vines are old, densely planted with low yields.  Only a miniscule 900 bottles of Pilon Vernon are made.  This is the king of Condrieu.  Pale yellow with pink reflections. Ripe citrus and pit fruits are then chiseled with mineral notes. Then a blast of white flower blossoms. Fresh, focused, and fine.   Pear, orange pith and ginger spice and subtle honeyed notes round out the flavors.  Elegant, great persistence and a worthy finish.  18 months in 30% new oak.
