CON­DRIEU Coteau de Ch­ery Mai­son M. Chapoutier 2013

Epicure - - COVER STORY -

Its first vin­tage was in 2010; this ex­cep­tional wine is pro­duced on a south-fac­ing slope on the top of the Con­drieu ap­pel­la­tion. This un­usual ter­roir gives an un­prece­dented min­er­al­ity to its unique grape va­ri­etal: Viog­nier. While the par­cel is south-fac­ing, the vines are lodged in an an­ti­cli­nal valley, bring­ing an in­cred­i­ble fresh­ness to the wine. Due to a very limited pro­duc­tion (400 bot­tles are bot­tled each year). Ma Cui­sine is the only wine bar in South-east Asia that car­ries it.

Fact: Michel Chapoutier is the wine­maker that was awarded the most 100 points by Robert Parker ever, with more than 40 of his wines re­ceiv­ing the per­fect score since 1989.
