Domaine François Villard
- France Rhône
The grapes for his Candiru are grown in the great Deponcins parcel, and his Viognier `Les Contours de Deponcins` is grown a mere stone`s throw away, but just outside of the appellation limit, meaning that it cannot carry the name `Condrieu`, but the fruit is still of the utmost quality, from an exceptional site. The whites are picked late to give them extra body and complexity, but still maintain a thrilling mineral streak and clean acidity. They can also age magnificently over more than five years, adding complex aromas of white peaches, honeysuckle and honey. The reds are just as good as the whites; full-bodied but soft and elegant with fine-grained tannins, lots of red berry and cherry fruit, pepper, spice and hints of oak from those new barrels.
