Condrieu La Loye is produced in granitic decomposition soil from approximately 25-year-old vines planted in terraces. It is matured in stainless steel tanks (60%) and barrique barrels (40%) for a period of one year. It delivers the yellow fruit aromas (apricot, peach) so typical of Viognier. The palate is refined and elegant, with an attractively acidic palette and a good balance between fat and freshness. This wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with white meat or goat cheese.

Condrieu La Loye Jean-Michel Gerin serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Escalope de veau à la crème, Risotto aux langoustines épicées, Chèvre.

    Information about domainDomaine Gerin

    The Gerin family has lived in Ampuis in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie for six generations. Jean-Michel Gerin established his own vineyards in 1983 with plots in the Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu appellations and two very fine parcels in La Landonne and Les Grandes Places. His vines are tended the traditional way, by hand and without the use of chemical fertilisers or herbicides. Extraction is a priority throughout the vinification process and the wines are aged in low-capacity oak barrels. Jean-Michel’s wines are concentrated and impressively velvety. His 12-hectare property takes in the Condrieu and Saint-Joseph appellations and the Collines Rhodaniennes IGP. Along with his wife, Monique, he represents the new wave of Côte-Rôtie producers even though his considerable experience gives his wines plenty of depth and finesse. In 2002 he also embarked on an additional venture, much further south in the sunny Priorat wine region, alongside friends Laurent Combier and Peter Fischer.
