Truly aromatic explosive expression, this wonderful vintage makes one appreciate both its richness and complexity. 
its full and savory taste in the mouth together with a beautiful mineraltaste drives us to a lasting and generous final taste.

The grapes are coming from a 0.8 hectare (2 acres) vineyard. 
The terroirs is made of decomposed granite soil on the slopes of the famous hillside of "Chéry". 
Vines are 30 years old on average.

Pair with sweetbreads cooked with morels, grilled white fish with green asparagus' risotto, veal chop, Japanese food.

 


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!"

Niero Cote Rotie Eminence 2013

The wine isa blend of 95% Syrah which gives strenght and structure and 5% Viognier for roundness and aromatic complexity. 
The nose majestically unveils an explosion of delicate aromas of red and black small fruits. The charm goes on through a silky texture, full of integrity and freshness, with fat tannins and a sweet final taste. Wonderful. 

The grapes are coming from a 1.8 hectare (4.50 acres) vineyard. 
The terroirs is made of schist soil on the slopes of "Valliere" and on the terraces of granitic "Coteau de Bassenon".
Vines are 20 years old on average.

Review:

Vivacious and peppery, this delicately framed Côte-Rôtie offers crisp black-cherry and berry flavors accented by savory truffle, leather and spice. Fine, rigid tannins and penetrating black-fruit flavors still need time to integrate. Hold till 2020.- Wine Enthusiast (March 2018), 92 pts

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:

"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

Review:

"The only red I was able to taste was the 2015 Côte Rôtie Vires De Serine, which is still aging in new French oak barrels. This full-bodied, opulent, sexy beauty is loaded with potential and offers classic notes of blackberries, barbecue smoke and olive tapenade, with its oak component smothered by gorgeous fruit. With ripe tannin and impeccable balance, it’s an impressive barrel sample."
