2019 Condrieu “Chéry”

André Perret
Discount Eligible $115.00
SOLD OUT

Condrieu is often overshadowed by the great red-wine AOCs of the northern Rhône, but I’m not exaggerating when I say this bottle from André Perret is one of the great wines of France. Made from ancient-vine Viognier planted along the Rhône’s dramatically steep hillsides, this blanc offers bewitching texture, density, and vibrant flavors of ripe peach, jasmine, tropical fruit, orange zest, and so much more. Pair it with shrimp and grits or grilled chicken for a transcendent experience.

Where the newsletter started

Every three or four months I would send my clients a cheaply made list of my inventory, but it began to dawn on me that business did not pick up afterwards. It occurred to me that my clientele might not know what Château Grillet is, either. One month in 1974 I had an especially esoteric collection of wines arriving, so I decided to put a short explanation about each wine into my price list, to try and let my clients know what to expect when they uncorked a bottle. The day after I mailed that brochure, people showed up at the shop, and that is how these little propaganda pieces for fine wine were born.—Kermit Lynch
