What the Critics say
‘Pale green-hued gold. High-pitched citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of violet, lemon pith and smoky minerals. Juicy, penetrating and strikingly pure, offering incisive pear, Meyer lemon and white peach flavors along with anise, saffron and floral nuances. Displays superb clarity and energy on the finish, which hangs on with outstanding, mineral-dominated tenacity. Most of these vines are close to 80 years of age now, Perret told me. Drink: 2019-2025’ (May18)
A single-vineyard offering from the Coteau de Chéry, one of the appellation’s most valued terroirs. The grapes from these 50yr old vines are fermented in stainless steel (one third) and barrique of which 25% is new oak. The wine is aged for one year on lees in barrique and a further three months in stainless steel before being bottled.
Widely known as the King of Condrieu, Andre Perret is considered one of the finest producers of white wine in the Rhône Valley. Andre Perret gained his title with his Burgundian approach in his multiple cuvees and meticulous work in the winery.
