Condrieu 2022


Condrieu is the ancestral home of the Viognier vine and is the source of one of the world’s most exotic white wines. In the mid-20th century, only 20 acres of Viognier remained in Condrieu, leaving the grape and the appellation in serious jeopardy. Guigal was instrumental in bringing this appellation back from near extinction, and today supplements the grapes from their own vineyards with grapes purchased from numerous small growers, ultimately vinifying nearly one-third of the entire appellation.

Saint-Joseph Blanc 2020

While the reds of Saint-Joseph are today one of the most exciting stories in the Rhone Valley, the minuscule production of whites, in the hands of the best producers, are absolutely thrilling and in a perhaps less extreme way than the other great whites of the region, namely in Hermitage and Condrieu. Get them while they’re still affordable.

Wine Spectator -November 27, 2023 "Opens up to reveal an appealing mix of floral, stone fruit and fresh apricot flavors. Dense and juicy on the palate, with oak whispers to round off the edges. Builds…

Tenuta Luce
