Cuilleron is an undisputed master of the Northern Rhone. The fruit in this bottling comes from just outside the Condrieu appellation but possesses all the lush texture and rich fruit that one would expect to find. It is the equal of some actual Condrieu at half the price, and who doesn’t love that. Textbook Viognier with loads of apricot, peach and floral notes on the nose, a creamy concentrated palate with a discreet lick of oak. This is a model of richness and restraint, truly all the best of Viognier.
