The Oddbins Take

Condrieu is a classic rag-to-riches story, like J K Rowling just with less wizards, wands and plots holes. "The Philosopher Stone is supposed to have the greatest security any wizarding object can receive, yet three 11-year olds circumvent it in one night! Nicolas Flamel should be furious!" We kid Ms Rowling, despite being adults, literally everyone at Oddbins has the Deathly Hallows symbol tattooed on them.


Just as J K Rowling was struggling before publishing the first Harry Potter book, writing chapters on tissue paper in cafés, so too did Condrieu. In the 70s this famous Northern Rhône white nearly fell out of existence as the unfashionability of the region clashed with how labour intensive the vineyards were. Thankfully, they both received the recognition they deserved; Condrieu now has 10x the amount of land under vine and with wines such as this, beautifully complex, packed with spice, apricot and peach characters, you can see why.
