2017 Les Ravines Domaine Rémi Niero

Grapes Viognier
Colour White
Origin France, Rhône
District Northern Rhône
Village Condrieu
ABV 14%

The 2017 Condrieu Les Ravines has a hint of grey/pink in its color and offers more white peach, honeyed minerality, and white flowers in its medium-bodied, supple yet crisp style. As with all these 2017s from Niero, it has the more supple, charming style of the vintage, is impeccably made, and well worth seeking out. Rating: 91 Jeb Dunnuck, www.jebdunnuck.com (Dec 2019)

Brilliant, green-hued straw. Penetrating aromas of fresh citrus and pit fruits are complemented by hints of chalky minerals, violet and ginger. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering juicy nectarine and Meyer lemon flavors that show fine definition and mineral drive. The floral note comes back strong on the persistent finish, which leaves a hint of candied orange zest behind. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 Rating: 92 Josh Raynolds, www.vinousmedia.com(May 2020)

Pale yellow. A nice toasty edge to start is then followed by a mineral slaty note and subtle apricot. Some weightiness on the mid palate but it is quite an elegant style of Condrieu. A clean and precise, focused wine, not overtly oily as some Condrieu can be. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 Rating: 16.5 Alistair Cooper MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Dec 2019)

Domaine Rémi Niero

The smart and charming Rémi started to work alongside his father in 2004 and today is in charge of the domaine along with his wife Krystel. They are the 3rd generation of winemakers and continue the tradition of the estate's refined and pure wines from Viognier and Syrah working from their cellars in Condrieu. The domaine has recently fully converted to organic farming, the wines much like the estate are pristine and pure.

This is 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 commune 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.
