AOP Condrieu

Domaine Gilles Flacher 2016

€760 Flacon de 10cl

This beautiful straw-gold colored Condrieu is a must-taste. On the nose, notes of white peach are followed by a floral perfume and aromas of tonka bean. This is dry yet soft white with a lively, opulent and silky textured palate and the typical apricot notes of Viognier. A beautiful touch of bitterness creates a delicious, zippy finish.

Winemaker

Gilles Flacher

The Flacher family has a long history in the wine business. The profession of winemaker has passed from father to son since 1806 and today it is Gilles who runs the family’s eight-hectare estate in Charnas. Gilles, who is deeply fond of his land, went about modernizing the estate and has also made a detailed study of the vineyard’s various terroirs with the help of a geologist from Lyon University. In the winery, Gilles has gradually developed his wines to produce a more concentrated style.
