Brunel De La Gardine Condrieu has a straw yellow core with a gold rim. The nose is opulent and expressive; apricot, peach and quince aromas dominate, with notes of violets, honey and baking spices under. Rich and full-figured, this is harmonious and well balanced with an almost buttery brioche finish.

Formerly labelled simply as Vin Blanc de la Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu lies on the right bank of the Rhône, bordering the départements of the Ardèche, the Rhône and the Loire. Its terrain is notable for its extremely steep slopes with gradients up to 50 degrees, making the growing and tending of vines really quite perilous.

Condrieu is the birthplace of Viognier, the sole permitted grape variety of this appellation. The reputation of its vineyards was born in Roman times and, despite enduring the torments of phylloxera and two World Wars, it inexplicably fell from favour and was reduced to just ten hectares of vines by 1960. Thanks to a surge in the popularity of Viognier in places such as California during the 1980s, the vineyards of Condrieu have subsequently experienced considerable expansion and today measure just over 100 hectares.

Château De La Gardine

The Brunel Family has been making wines in the Southern Rhône Valley since 1670, but their journey in Châteauneuf du Pape began in the middle of the 20th century. Since then, four generations have lived and worked in Château de la Gardine, steadily increasing the size of the estate. In 1963, the family acquired 47 additional hectares in Rasteau and Côtes-du-Rhône Villages. Then, in 1998, they acquired the 45-hectare Château Saint-Roch in Lirac. They have since returned to their négociant heritage with the Brunel De La Gardine collection, selecting the best grapes from a range of Southern and Northern Rhône appellations. The family blends and matures the wines, respecting the tradition and the typicity of each terroir. The Brunels strive to ensure that each of their wines are a testimony to their designation as well as an embodiment of their family values: quality, authenticity and a deep respect for the environment.
