Christophe Pichon has been working his family estate for over 25 years. Since 2014 his sons Corentin and Alexis have joined their father in both the vineyards and the cellar. He makes wine from a total of 23 hectares; the vineyards are spread over the appellations of Condrieu, Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Saint-Joseph. His holdings in Condrieu consist of 4.9 hectares of steep, south-facing vineyards of Viognier of up to 60 years in age. The vineyard is hand-harvested and after the initial alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is aged in large French oak barrels, 30% of which are new, with an additional 50% being one year old.
The 2018 Domaine Christophe Pichon Condrieu offers fresh, vibrant aromas of honeysuckle and ripe yellow plum. On the palate, the wine is well balanced yet full-bodied. Head-turning and complex, it offers layers of wildflower, minerality, ripe melon, tropical fruit, and white pit fruits that present themselves across an incredibly long, richly-textured, and concentrated palate that lingers on forever.
While this wine is absolutely stunning today in its youth, it will gain weight and complexity with age. Incredibly versatile, this wine makes for a delightful cocktail sipper but will also shine when paired with fresh seafood such as sushi and grilled tuna or salmon. This wine will absolutely sing with Asian cuisines.
