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

Review:

"Lastly, and up with the crème de la crème of the appellation, the 2016 Condrieu Chéry is about as textbook as it gets. Apricots, buttered citrus, flowers, and an undeniable minerality all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, layered, multi-dimensional beauty that carries tons pure fruit, yet stays balanced and pure. Bravo!"

Review:

"A selection of the best individual barrels/cuves, the 2016 Condrieu Heritage is drawn from the estate's oldest vines (around 70 years old), aged in stainless steel (60%) and barrel (40%). It's textbook floral, apricot aromas lead into a medium to full-bodied wine that manages to be rich and viscous without being cloying, as citrus zest and brine emerge on the long finish. - Joe Czerwinski"
- The Wine Advocate (Issue #234, December 2017), 93-95 pts

"Coming from a who’s who of vineyards (Roncharde, Côte Chatillon, La Caille, Vergelas, Corbéry and Chéry) and brought up in a mix of stainless steel and French oak, the 2016 Condrieu Héritage boasts an exotic, perfumed bouquet of wildflowers, honeysuckle, liquid rock and ripe tangerines. With medium-bodied richness and a crisp, balanced, beautifully fresh style, it just sings of pure Viognier (and Condrieu) and is a great white to drink over the coming 4-6 years."

Review:

Pale gold. Heady, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit aromas, along with a sexy floral overtone that gains strength as the wine opens up. Silky, focused and seamless on the palate, offering intense orange, pear, white peach and bitter quinine flavors that show excellent depth as well as energy. The floral note reemerges on the strikingly long, penetrating finish, which leaves behind a sweet peach nectar note. - Tanzer 93 Points
