Vignobles Chirat 'Or Piste' Viognier Vin de France 2022 75cl
Wow! A round, pear and apple aroma with lots of lovely oily fruit on the palate, flowers and a long, rounded palate. So tasty. Essentially it is declassified Condrieu without the Condrieu price.
Aurélien Chirat is a fourth generation grower whose cellar in St-Michel-sur-Rhône is at the confluence of the Condrieu and Saint-Joseph appellations. His father, Gilbert, finally gave up his polycultural farming activities in 1984 to concentrate on viticulture, selling wine to the likes of Marcel Guigal. Aurélien joined Gilbert in 2008 and took control of the cellar in 2018
