Condrieu Côte Chatillon - Bottle
This cuvée is harmonious and suave. Notes of yellow fruits, exotic fruits and flowers dominate on the first nose. Like great wines, the aromatic complexity increases with a little aeration. Our Côte Chatillon is both soft and massive, powerful and tender. The sweetness and woodiness that characterize it are embellished with more mineral notes, which help to form a nicely balanced whole. This wine requires all our attention to manage to reconcile tenderness, strength and balance in the same bottle.
