2022 Condrieu Legende Bonnetta - bottled in July. A little muted on the nose, a bit closed possible due to just being bottled. A bit of attractive stone fruit, not quite singing yet, but still a good effort, musk, perfume stone fruit & apricot with bright fresh acidity, not an ounce of fat, delicious. L&S (Oct 2023)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

Very rich, full-bodied, concentrated and opulent. It has a sweet richness that is further accentuated by the oak, plus an inner citric bite and some noble bitters that help bring balance to this very intense, concentrated Condrieu. There’s a long, saline, firm finish. No new oak, malolactic completed. Drinking range: 2023 - 2030 Rating: 93 Matt Walls, (Nov 2023)

Tasted blind. A salty and slightly mineral note on the nose. The palate has good energy and freshness beneath a cloak of rich golden fruit, apple, nectarine and cereal. Powerful and rich but also has a nice streak of minerality to freshen it. Drinking range: 2024 - 2030 Rating: 16.5 Alistair Cooper MW - (Nov 2023)

Clos de la Bonnette

A new (ish) find, having tasted at trade shows and fairs in France, we were then thrilled that Matt Walls went so far as to list the 'Legende Bonnetta' cuvée as his top Condrieu from the 2019 vintage - a strong field with some fairly serious contenders! Husband and wife team Isabelle & Henri are fully certified organic, they had been farming fruit and vegetables in the region since the 1970s but since 2009 have focused solely on the vine. They make some very compelling wines from a tiny 5 hectare estate, split between Condrieu and two sites in Côte Rôtie. Tasting these in London turned us into wide-eyed children – the wines are truly magical and surpassed our already elevated expectations. The Côte Rôtie and Condrieu are gorgeous – so sleek and polished, with a nose that you just want to dive into. We were also hugely impressed with the IGP Syrah – made with 35-45 year old vines, this was a delight.
