Ratings & Reviews


95 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"This is very rounded and fresh aromatically, with low but balanced acidity and a good intensity of pithy citrus fruits alongside real persistence and freshness. It also has a huge length in an otherwise fairly dilute vintage. Planted on the lieu-dit Chéry, south-facing granite terraces. 60% fermented in barrel, 40% in stainless steel, the barrel component sees some lees stirring, all goes through malolactic fermentation." - Matt Walls (Sept 2019)

94 Points - Vinous Media:
"Light, bright yellow. Heady, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of ripe citrus and pit fruits and pungent flowers are complemented by a suave, building floral element. Silky and penetrating, offering intense white peach, tangerine and pear flavors that fan out through the mid-palate. Shows impressive energy and spicy cut on a long, smooth finish that echoes the floral note emphatically." - Josh Raynolds (May 2020)

91+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2018 Condrieu Chery from Niero is a solid effort that leans toward the more fresh, racy side of the spectrum while still holding onto plenty of fruit. Spiced citrus, honeyed limes, spice, and a touch of sappy floral notes all flow to a medium-bodied, mineral-laced Condrieu that stays tight and compact on the palate. It's going to benefit from a year in bottle and keep for 2-3 years or more." (12/12/2019)

16/20 - Jancis Robinson:
"100% Viognier. Aged for 12 months in oak and tank. Tasted blind. Rounded and easy-drinking with stone fruit, spice and a touch of toasted complexity on the finish. Light in concentration." - (RH)
