Coming largely from 80-year-old vines in the Coteau du Chery, Perret's 2016 Condrieu Chery is a tremendous effort. The decomposed granite soils seem to impart more tension into the wine, so although this medium to full-bodied wine is rich and fruity, it's also lively, spicy and fresh. Floral and apricot aromas lead the way, followed by a silky-textured palate that never seems heavy and a nearly never-ending finish. Traditional and entirely manual methods are used to cultivate the vines. No systematic treatment, pesticides are used with moderation and only as and when required. 1/3 of the production in stainless steel vats, and 2/3 in wooden vats. 12 months (regular stirring of the lees followed by racking). Temperature and hygrometry control. The wine is then preserved on its lees for one year before being bottled. ABV 13%
