Jean-François Jacouton - Condrieu
One of the most prestigious appellations in the Northern Rhône Valley. A Condrieu with complexity and structure!
In 2010, Jean-François Jacouton created his cellar after having gained experience in different regions and his apprenticeship with one of the great winegrowers of the northern Côtes du Rhône such as "Le Domaine Courbis". Help in these beginnings by Maurice Courbis for the purchase of vines and Joël Durand for the vinification. He will first recover the vines of his grandfather André who is a few kilometers from Tournon. Then now, he works 6 hectares of vines without weed killer on several appellations, the main one being Saint Joseph. Since the creation of the estate, its philosophy has been to produce more sustainably and in a reasoned way.
Made from a selection of Viognier from the Condrieu appellation. The vines are planted on a plateau above the Rhône with granite soil.

Vinification and aging
Harvested by hand, 100% whole harvest, aging on fine lees and in barrels for 10 months.
Beautiful brilliant dress of golden yellow color.
A complex bouquet with notes of white fruits such as vine peach and a floral touch of violet.
An ample, balanced and velvety wine that coats the palate. We find the notes of white fruits which bring roundness and amplitude in the mouth.
The Sommelier's little extra

A gastronomic wine that would go well with roast lobster or king prawns and its green sauce. Or even better at the end of the meal with your platter of "hard cheese" like an old Etivaz, a caramel Gruyère or a dry goat's cheese!
