Côte-Rôtie & Condrieu

Famille Levet - Côte-Rôtie
While I'm a long-time fan of the Levet family's traditionally made wines, there's no doubt in my mind that with the arrival of Nicole and Bernard Levet's daughter, Agnes, the wines are now among the very best being made in the appellation. The wild character and concentration that has always marked the wines is still there, but there's a degree of elegance and, I daresay, polish to them that one didn't find in decades past. The wines are still raised in large oak foudres as well as demi-muids, with only about 10% of them new, and the flagship La Péroline bottling only sees foudres, which is often the case with the Journaries as well. Agnes told me that she thinks the 2014s will drink well on the relatively young side because "they have a very nice balance of richness and freshness"

Georges Vernay - Condrieu & Côte-Rôtie
Georges Vernay has played a vital role in the history of Condrieu & Côte-Rôtie , and the domaine that bears his name remains the appellation’s most famous. Christine Vernay carries on the brilliant work here with dry whites made from Viognier that have the opulence and intensity that borders on the narcotic - while the Syrah's are nothing short of pure seduction! In 2013, Christine was given the prestigious award of "Winemaker of the Year" by Bettane & Dessauve.

“Christine Vernay is at the top of her game and readers looking for the best Condrieu has to offer need look no further. In addition, the quality of her Côte-Rôties (she has roughly three hectare in the southern part of the appellation) has skyrocketed recently. This is an estate that, without a doubt, merits your attention and hard-earned money.”
