For many years Condrieu was considered one of the great white wines of France. It is the birthplace of the beguiling Viognier grape and the home of its greatest expression. Lately, in my opinion, the appellation has suffered greatly from global warming, coupled with a trend toward more new wood and a general preference for riper, more obvious wines. The result has been an increasingly one-dimensional wine in Condrieu—decadent and unctuous but lacking in delineation, balance, and refreshment. The Condrieus of André Perret in Verlieu turn this unfortunate trend completely on its head. So does the humble and authentic Condrieu produced by Lionel Faury in Chavanay. Lionel and I share the same taste (I’d like to think good taste), and he is one hell of a vigneron and winemaker. Vintage after vintage, he produces highly perfumed, well-balanced, utterly delicious Condrieu that we are very proud to sell. –Dixon Brooke
