2019 Coeur De Roncharde Domaine Rémi Niero
The new kid on the Niero block, it makes an impression straight away. A little more pure if that is possible, more concentrated than Ravines but less exuberant, still has a floral of apricot, mandarin. Minerality shines through, an exotic Condrieu without straying too far into the fatness that can cloak, a lovely twist of galangal on the finish. A year in bottle to fill out and enjoy for 3-5 years. Another really impressive wine from Remi Niero, he certainly knows how to get the best expression from his terroir. L&S (Mar 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Along the same lines, the 2019 Condrieu Coeur De Roncharde is slightly more reserved, with beautiful white peach, apricot, and floral notes being grounded nicely by a sense of minerality. With terrific purity, a medium to full-bodied, supple, sexy texture, and a great finish, it's another great Condrieu to drink over the coming 4-5 years.

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.
