M Chapoutier Condrieu Invitare 2021
The Chapoutiers have been leading vignerons in the Rhône for more than 200 years. Their white wines from the difficult but exquisite viognier grape from Condrieu and neighbouring hillsides and made at their winery at Tain-l’Hermitage are truly outstanding. Their classy Condrieu ‘Invitare’ with elegance and depth that can rival the very finest white burgundy.
The 2021 Condrieu Invitare shows the fresher style of the vintage while still bringing plenty of classic Viognier texture and richness. Flowers, apricots, and orange-tinged aromas and flavors all emerge from the glass, and it’s medium-bodied, balanced, and an outstanding Condrieu to drink over the coming 4-6 years.
