2016 Les Ravines Domaine Rémi Niero
This domaine turned out a trio of fine 2016s. The 2016 Condrieu Les Ravines, blended from five different granite lieux-dits, features scents of crushed stone to go along with bold pineapple fruit. It's round and even a bit oily but not overdone, balanced by hints of ginger and white pepper on the finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 92-94 Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com (Jan 2018)

Domaine Rémi Niero
One of the original domaines of the Condrieu appellation, and centred on the oldest vineyard, above Condrieu itself and with a decent holding in the Coteau du Chéry, which, with the Coteau du Vernon, is considered one of the best sites. The domaine existed 45 years ago when the whole appellation was just 8 hectares of vines (it's now 160 hectares), under the name Pinchon. Rémi's father Robert married the Pinchon daughter, so now, having been Domaine Niero-Pinchon for a bit, it has been shortened to simply Niero when Rémi took over. The Condrieus come from just over 4 hectares of vines, all in the comune of Condrieu itself, in the parcels Coteau de Chéry, La Roncharde, Côte Chatillon, La Caille, Vergelas and Corbéry. The Condrieus are aged in tank (60%) and barrel (40%) for a year. The Côte-Rôties come from two sites, La Viallière and Le Coteau de Bassenon, from the southern end of the appellation, a total of nearly 2 hectares. They are aged for 16 months in barrel, with 20% new wood.
