Mouton Père & Fils

Mouton Père & Fils

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 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 – the wines are matured in Burgundian barrels with little to no toasting. 

Jean-Claude’s son, Bryan, now shares the duties with his father and divides his time between the vineyards and the winery. Bryan acknowledges that 2020 was difficult for Viognier as the powerful sunshune caused alcohols to rise ahead of the phenolic maturity of the grapes. They had to manage this very carefully in the vineyard. The fact that Mouton Père et Fils ’20s are ripe yet full of elegance and restraint is testament to their significant skill. The ’20 vintage also introduces a new single vineyard wine to the Mouton fold, Corbery, vinified and matured 100% in concrete eggs. We really love the precision and purity of the new cuvée, bravo!
