2020 Les Agathes IGP Domaine Rémi Niero
If you ask every year, sometimes they give in. Every vintage I enquire what we can have an every year the answer is none. The Niero IGP Syrah comes from a small parcel on the flat lands by the river, Syrah in Condrieu, whatever next? Grab some whilst you can because this is a joyful glass of bright raspberry & dark cherry infused wine, a little hint of licorice in the background with fresh acidity, fingers crossed we get more in the future.

*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.
Silky, fresh and even a bit delicate, the 2020 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Les Agathes Syrah offers up hints of fresh herbs and cherries on the nose. It's medium-bodied and streamlined on the palate, with an easygoing finish. Enjoy it young.Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com (May 2022)
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.
