Domaine Robert Niero Domaine Robert Niero "Les Ravines" Condrieu 2010

Condrieu was once a dying appellation with a rather unusual grape variety in Viognier. But its resurgence in the last 20 years is very much down to producers like Remi & Robert Niero and their ability to produce wines of this quality and sense of place. This is a classic Viognier showing honeysuckle, apricot and a light creamy citrus edge.
