Due to Viognier’s tendancy to yield only a small amount of fruit, not a lot of Condrieu is produced. Known for its full body and aromatic richness, Duvernay's wine, harvested from grpaes grown on steep granite slopes, lives up to the wine's enigmatic reputation. There’s a powerful, fresh bouquet of field flowers, given even more oomph by fleshy exotic fruit. An unctuous palate is typically perfumed, rich with peach, apricot and melon.
