Chateau Grillet, Condrieu “La Carthery”

This Condrieu La Cathery from Château Grillet is a rarity, with production limited to only a hundred bottles! It is a real success, offering a perfect balance on the palate and intense aromas of peaches and white flowers, enhanced by nuances of bourbon vanilla.
