Condrieu 2014 by Cuilleron

In the steep hills north in  the Rhone valley there is a small appelation which is called Condrieu. Here the rare grape of Viognier is grown. A grape not well known to many people but which gives a fantastic wine when grown here.

It is a full bodied white with a very pronounced and overwhelming smell of flower, peach, apricot, tropical fruit etc.

The taste is dominated by ripe fruit, medium acidity and a long finish. Very good to outstanding quality.

This is not a white for the fainthearted as the style is rather opulent.

But with 2 year old Comte it is the perfect match.

Cuilleron (manager) has many different styles. The wine is pricy and rare to get hold of.

Chambolle Musigny 2006 by Patrice Rion

I am still in Burgundy mood, which is a very expensive mood to be in wherever you live but especially when stuck in Norway. Luckily the selection is quite good and Friday my eyes landed on a Chambolle Musigny 2006 by Patrice Rion. Patrice Rion is a small bio-dynamically family run winery in Nuits St George and was created in 1990. According to what I was told previous weekend in Paris, Volnay and the Chambolle are the two most elegant and seductive wines from Burgundy. The wine is not unlike a Beaune Premier cru with  a medium dark red colour but perhaps slightly less "fat" with a lovely delicate smell of raspberries and cherries. The taste was soft, elegant, silky , smooth, velvety with lovely fruit, balance and creamy tannins. Very yummy indeed and so is the price at around 40€, but when you need Burgundy its worth every penny! Chambolle Musigny 2006, Patrice Rion P+ and drink between 4 to 6 years old.

Pedregosa Cava 2014

Castelo de Pedrogosa was established in 1993 and has been working ecological since 1997. They have 26 hectares in the heart of the cava growing area in Penedes. The reserva clos brut nature is a mix of the local grapes Xarel-lo, Parellada and Macabeo. Quite a refreshing nose with apples, citrus, yeasty notes and some minerality. Fresh elegant taste with a very good acidity. Try with fish, seafood or as an aperitif. Very reasonable wine.
