Deep gold, golden yellow with green lights.
Very fruity and exotic nose of pineapple, lychee, apricot, peach and acacia blossom.
Round, full, good length in the mouth with a final of vanilla.
Short ageing on the lees of around 8 months to preserve freshness.
Ageing is carried out in wood to give the wine complexity.
15% of the wine is aged in new barrels while the remaining 85% is aged in demi-muids used for one to two vintages.
Seafood of all types, sushi, sashimi, oysters, clams, and particularly lobster. Chicken, pork, veal, vegetables and all cheeses also make great pairings with Condrieu.
