2019 Condrieu Lieu Dit l'Aleau, Domaine Bott

2019 is the first release made from the vines Julie and Graeme planted themselves in their garden. Effectively, where their whole adventure began. The vineyard sits between Coteau de Chéry and Château Grillet, behind their house in Vérin. They like to pick their whites early, and here they have captured the freshness of just-ripened Viognier with its silky texture in this stunning debut. There’s a tangy grip here which we love. Just 934 bottles have been made.

2019 Condrieu Lieu Dit l'Aleau, Domaine Bott
Domaine Bott

Kiwi Graeme and local Julie met working for Stéphane Ogier. After a decade spent working for one of the greatest winemakers of Côte Rôtie, the young couple, affectionately known as “Les Kiwis d’Ampuis”, decided to strike out on their own. They own six hectares across Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, and St Joseph that they are busily planting. With the success of their first few vintages they have managed to upgrade winemaking facilities from their small garage to a neighbour’s slightly larger one. These wines are handcrafted, and the early results suggest a bright future for this new domaine.
