Domaine Merlin
France > Northern Rhône > Collines Rhodaniennes
A fantastic-value Rhône white mirroring the esteemed Condrieu in all but name and price. Brimming with ripe stone fruits, floral notes, and a tropical touch, this wine offers an exceptional fresh and vibrant take on Viognier. Expertly crafted by first-generation winemaker François Merlin in the Collines Rhodaniennes IGP, it's a gem that over-delivers on every sip.
91/100 - Aromas of bitter orange and apricot skins open onto a medium- to full-bodied palate; very impressive for an IGP. There's appealing, quite piercing acidity, with good length and freshness. From Viognier vines planted in granite soils in St-Michel-sur-Rhône. Good value. - Matt Walls, Decanter
