91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Viognier Le Pied de Samson comes from old vines near the estate and is a beautiful, classic Viognier that's perfect for those looking for some Condrieu character while not breaking the bank. Giving up lots of white flowers, tangerines, and lemon curd notes, it's medium-bodied, has a textbook Viognier floral edge, outstanding balance, and is a hidden gem from this great estate. " (12/2019) K&L Notes: One of the most iconic estates in the Northern Rhone, Christine Vernay took over the property some twenty years ago from h...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Condrieu Les Terrasses de L'Empire has a portion brought up in oak, all being used, and it's always a great introduction into the wines of this estate. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, it has terrific purity (especially given the heat in the vintage) as well as lots of white flower, salted citrus, tangerine, and a kiss of rocky minerality. Nicely concentrated as well as balanced, this brilliant wine is not far off the two pricier releases." (12/2019) K&L Notes: One of the most iconic estates in the Northern ...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better, the 2016 Condrieu Les Chaillees de l'Enfer is vinified and aged in 25% new French oak (it’s made in the same fashion as the Coteau de Vernon). It would probably be the wine of the vintage if it wasn’t for its big brother. This vibrant gold-colored beauty boasts a huge nose of citrus blossom, tangerine, white flowers, citrus zest, and ample minerality. This is all about purity, finesse, and focus, with medium body, good acidity, and a terrific sense of salty minerality on the finish. It’s another brilliant wine from Ma...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Condrieu Chaillees De L'Enfer comes from a hillside just next to Coteau de Vernon and was first made in 1992. It's brought up exactly like the Coteau de Vernon, so the difference (and there are always differences between the two wines) are all due to terroir. Stunning notes of ripe citrus, orange pith, spice, and floral notes all emerge from the glass, and this medium to full-bodied Condrieu has good acidity, a vibrant, elegant texture, and a great finish. It's not a blockbuster, but this estate made sure to hold onto a s...

2015 Georges Vernay "Les Chaillées de l'Enfer" Condrieu (Elsewhere $125) (Elsewhere $125)
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A bigger, richer wine in every way, the 2015 Condrieu Les Chaillees De L'Enfer is a seriously good, hedonistic beauty that's loaded with caramelized peach, hints of apricot, brioche and white flowers. It's a big, rich, powerful wine, yet it has terrific elegance, nuances and length." (01/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This flirts with an exotic character, as apricot, peach, persimmon and nectarine flavors vie with one another, while racy white ginger, honeysuckle and bitter orange notes add energy and range through the finish....

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Noticeably richer and more textured, with buttered citrus, honeysuckle, crushed rock, brioche and sautéed peach notes, the 2014 Condrieu les Chailles de L'Enfer is a rich, medium to full-bodied, impeccably-balanced effort that has more than a passing resemblance to its bigger brother, the Coteaux du Vernon. (JD)" (12/2016) 94 points Vinous: "Vivid yellow. Expansive aromas of nectarine, ripe citrus fruits, mango, fresh fig and pungent flowers and a hint of smoky minerals in the background. Broad, fleshy citrus a...

92 points Vinous: "Light gold. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe orchard and pit fruits, honey, violet and chamomile, while a zesty mineral nuance adds lift. Rich and seamless on the palate, offering intense poached pear, lemon gelato and white peach flavors complemented by hints of anise and succulent herbs. Closes spicy, sappy and very long, with nervy mineral cut and strong persistence. (JR)" (03/2016) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Green melon, pear and apricot notes glide along in this textbook version, finishing with a hint of green fig on the...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "We finished the 2013 whites with the 2013 Condrieu Coteaux du Chery. While 2013 was a difficult, slightly varied vintage for Condrieu, this beauty doesn’t miss a beat and exhibits incredible tangerine, citrus, white flower and minerality to go with full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It combines that rare mix of exotic, voluptuous fruit and texture (from Viognier) with riveting focus and freshness (from the granite soils) on the palate. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years. (JD)" (12/2014) 93 points Vin...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I considered rating Chapoutier's 2012 Condrieu Coteaux du Chery even higher, and it certainly stands toe-to-toe with Vernay's, Guigal's and Perret's top cuvees. Perfumed, floral and classic, with lots of apricot, tangerine, orange blossom and floral qualities, this beauty has full-bodied richness and texture, yet stays pure, elegant and seamless. It's a heavenly Condrieu to drink over the coming 3-4 years. (JD)" (12/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Green-tinged yellow. A powerful, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes fre...

From Aaron Pott's own estate high on Mount Veeder in Napa County. Winery notes: "Bright acidity on the attack, honeydew, honeysuckle and honey, peach, full mid palate blending floral and fruit, with nice density balanced by bright acidity, finishes with peach, lychee, honeysuckle, pecorino and melon. The Viognier is entirely fermented and aged in Italian terra cotta amphorae, so it never sees oak or stainless steel. The amphorae are hand made in Tuscany by the Manetti family using the same clay pits that the Etruscans used for their pottery thousands of ...
