2018 Condrieu

This Condrieu from domaine Barou has delicate aroma’s of peaches, dried fruit and white flowers.the perfume of the of the boquet and the richness of the fruit would suggest a sweet wine but it is dry and very complex. It’s texture and oppulance reminds of chardonnay but the flavors are very different. It’s an amazing very full bodied wine, it’s a must try.

The producer

Domaine Barou

In 1997, after studying viticulture and oenology in Orange and Avignon, Emmanuel took over the family domaine and oriented the exploitation towards viticulture. This specialization resulted in the planting of new plots in AOC Saint-Joseph and Condrieu AOC, and the renovation of an old barn into a new chai. Today, the domaine consists of 7 hectares of Vin de Pays vines on the granite soils around Charnas, and 3 hectares in nearby Limony of AOC St Joseph and Condrieu. Since 2013, the domaine has been practicing biodynamic methods.
