At the time of the Roman Empire, due to the growth of the number of vineyards in Gaule and a general overproduction, it was decided that half of Gaule’s vine stocks must be removed. The Emperor Probus demanded that a single hillside must be preserved, his “Cherished” hillside, overlooking the Rhone Valley, producing an extraordinary wine. Condrieu “Chéry”, from that famed slope, balances elegance with strength. Its strong nature comes from the exceptional exposure of the hillside and the age of the vines. A legendary wine.
