Lionel Faury 2017 Condrieu, Rhône Valley, France
Faury 2017 Condrieu, Rhône Valley, France
Winemaker: Lionel Faury
Terroir: vines planted between 1976 and 2007 on steep slopes of granite (with a grade of up to 55%) facing south by south-east.
Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked and pressed gently in a pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel cuves.
Aging: 11 months on lees, 10% new barrels, 30% 2 to 5-year-old barrels, and 60% stainless steel.
Along the steep, narrow valley that traces the northern Rhône, the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint-Joseph take their place among the great wines of France, and Domaine Faury is one of the region’s most artisanal producers. When Philippe Faury took over the domaine in 1979, the family was selling wine, peaches and cherries, and the bulk of their clientele was local. Over the years, Philippe expanded their holdings to over eleven hectares, and expanded sales to an international client base. In addition, he has shared his savoir faire with his son, Lionel. Since 2006, Lionel has taken over the reins at Domaine Faury, though father and son still work side by side.
