Jean-Claude Mouton’s vines sit high above the village of Condrieu. His modest winery is located right on the top of the hill, giving a wonderful view over the valley below. He currently farms 3.4 hectares in the appellation, with another 1.5 due to come into use over the next few years. His two Condrieu lieux dits cuvées express two quite different terroirs. One is mainly planted on granite, the other based on a mixture of clay, limestone and loess. In the winery, minimal new oak is used, and the wines are matured in Burgundian barrels with little to no toasting. Jean-Claude is now joined by his son Bryan, who currently divides his time between the vineyards and the winery. Bryan comments that 2019, like all vintages since 2015, is a very beautiful vintage for the appellation, despite the hot and dry conditions.
