Review:

"A deep, rich and mineral-laced style of Condrieu, Niero’s 2014 Condrieu Chéry is loaded with notions of apple blossom, honeyed tangerine, smoke and citrus. Coming all from the famed granite soils of the Chéry lieu-dit (which is one of the top terroirs in Condrieu and consist of mostly 50- to 80-year-old vines), this medium to full-bodied beauty has plenty of mid-palate depth, good acidity and a focused, yet lengthy feel on the palate. Aged 12 months in 60% stainless steel and 40% in oak, it’s a terrific success in this less than straightforward vintage.- Jeb Dunnuck"
- The Wine Advocate (Issue #222, December 2015), 92 pts

Brilliant yellow-gold. Powerful peach, melon and tangerine aromas, backed by floral and honey nuances. Silky and open-knit, showing very good heft and thrust to the juicy citrus and pit fruit flavors. Rich yet lively thanks to a core of acidity that drives a long, ginger-accented finish. Textbook Condrieu, and the type I'd drink with decadent foods, like sweetbreads or Veal Oscar. Blue cheeses would also work well.-Tanzer 93 Points

Winery: Remi Niero

Remi Niero Estate

It is on terraced hillsides that the Domaine Niero harvests the best grapevines of Viognier and Syrah to offer unique vintages of Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie.

Culture ways:

Caring about environment, your wine grower has resorted to thoughtful working methods in the vineyard so as to develop a responsible wine growing . Moreover, aware of the need to adapt his culture policies, he has recently resorted to organic farming.

Date Founded: 1973

Owner: Remi Niero
Winery Philosophy: "Having a real passion for wine for nearly twenty years, I’ve followed in my father’s footsteps and have taken over the family domain by his side from 2004. For three generations (the domain was created in 1973), we have given much importance to the quality of our wines from the unique soils of Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie.

As vintage wines from the northern Rhône Valley, my vintages reflect our passion and are the fruits of a genuine know-how, a legacy from both my father and my grandfather. I invite you to discover the typical aspects of my wines, which I’ve worked on while keeping up the tradition and respect of our environment to make them the finest and the most unique vintages.

Either in Condrieu or in Côte-Rôtie, each type of vine (Viognier or Syrah) fully expresses itself according to its favourite soil. Endowed with a great open-mindedness further to my numerous visits through worldwide vineyards, I strive to make my wines delicate, structured and unique products. From the vineyard work to the wine-making process, my team and I have done our best to get the perfect maturity and the quintessence of aroma in order to offer the wines that wonderfully reflect our outstanding soil."

Rémi Niero
Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie wine grower

Now at the head of the vineyard , Rémi Niero has taken over from his father Robert, who, from Rémi’s early age, has passed on to him his whole know-how and passion for wine growing. The latter had taken over a small vineyard from his father-in-law Jean Pinchon in 1985, planting and working hard in those “chaillets” to make one of the most beautiful landscapes of our shared patrimony look more beautiful. Despite the requirement of this soil, his efforts have been rewarded by the authentic and natural balance of the wines.

To honor his masters Robert and Jean, Rémi offers his new vintage « Héritage» ,which is particularly faithful to the know-how and identity of the domain. Taken from the selection of the most beautiful casks of Condrieu, it will charm your taste buds and those of your guests.

 

Remi Niero Côte-Rôtie vineyard:

History:
It is one of the oldest vineyards in France. The Romans developed it and later, during the Middle-Age, a legend says that Lord Maugiron shared his good between his two daughters, one brown-haired and the other blond-haired,hence the names that the wines have kept , Côte Brune and Côte Blonde. Côte-Rôtie is the domain of the Syrah vine, which is broad and manly. A small place has been given to Viognier (20 % maximum allowed in the blend) which can bring a more feminine note.

Soils and climate:
The vine is harvested on grape-pickers’ backs on very steep granitic hillsides called “chaillets”, hold back by stone walls. The climate is the same than in the Condrieu vineyard. Rémi and Robert Niero’s Côte-Rôtie comes from two parcels over two hectares : La Viallière and Le Côteau de Bassenon (the southernmost parcel of the label).

Lots of tobacco, Turkish coffee and licorice root details fill in on the finish, which leaves a broad wake. Best from 2018 through 2028. 8,000 cases made. - 93 Points Wine Spectator

Review:

Lots of flower petal, dark fruit and hits of bark. Full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. A complete and delicious red. Better in 2017, but why wait?"

- James Suckling (June 6th 2015), 92 pts

"The blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carmenere and 20% Syrah is an expressive array of deep, black fruit and spice. A vein of chocolate sweetens violets petals and the texture and density of the wine is impressive to the finish. Aged in French oak for 14-16 months. A true-blue match with red meat. - Meridith May"

- The Tasting Panel (Publisher's Picks, April 2016), 92 pts

"Rustic aromas of baked berry fruits, black olive, herbs and eucalyptus lead to a forward, fairly tannic palate. An herbal flavor profile includes olive, blackberry, plum and spice notes, while the finish on this Cabernet-led blend tastes peppery and herbal, which is nothing unusual for Chile. Drink through 2020."
