"Lys d'Or" - Condrieu - Viogner - 2018

Viogner • France • Rhone

 

A spectacular example of the height Viogner can achieve! Packed with aromas of white flower, honey, peaches and apricot, with hints of orange peel, and a well balanced very aromatic palate. After first tasting this, Francesco's face looked stunned until he finally said very quietly, "This is the best wine I've tasted in years."

About the producer: The history of Christophe Semaska is linked to the revival in 1988 of a great Côte Rôtie Domaine: Le Château de Montlys, a gem left untouched since the 1789 revolution. This 16th century domaine sits on a hillside facing the Rhône river, a great location for the triving of Syrah and it still remains the largest privately owned estate, with 8ha of terraced vineyards, in Cote Rotie. Chateau de Montlys went dormant for 70 years during WWI due to the devastation of the vineyards brought by phylloxera. A new winery was built in 2011 with the latest equipment for vinification, maturation and cellaring.
