91/100 Matt Walls, Decanter

A superb Rhone Viognier from a parcel of vines just outside the Condrieu appellation, this delicious wine really is Condrieu in all but name—and price, which is amazingly good value even at the full price—and through the Club it is outstanding!

Brimming with ripe stone fruits, floral notes and a tropical touch, this wine is an exceptional fresh and vibrant take on Viognier. Expertly crafted by François Merlin in the Collines Rhodaniennes IGP, it’s a gem that over-delivers in every way. Decanter’s Matt Walls, awarding 91 points, notes ‘Aromas of bitter orange and apricot skins… very impressive … good length and freshness… Good value.’

The François Merlin domaine has rapidly ascended to the top tier of northern Rhône producers. His wines are precise yet full of energy, and his attention to detail is second to none, and the results really do speak for themselves.
