DOMAINE CLOS DE LA BONNETTE

LVT 2019 wh 2019 r  One of the few domaines to work organically on the tricky granite terraces. Isabelle and her husband Henri worked five hectares of fruit and vegetables - also organic since 1970 - before giving up that activity due to his ill health. He is a mason, and built their house. The first vinification was in 2009. Both the 2015 and 2016 Condrieu Légenda Bonnetta were neat **** wines, while the Les Roches d'Arbuel Condrieu is a good, grounded wine deserving of fine fish such as turbot or halibut, sea bass: it was **** in 2016. From 2016 there is small scale [3,500 b] Côte-Rôtie made by son Antoine from 1970s Syrah on Prenelle on the Coteau de Tupin. In 2019 a second Côte-Rôtie was started from a 0.4 ha vineyard of Isabelle's ex-husband's family [Gérin], that had previously been rented to Jean-Michel Stéphan. There is a gem of an IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah Vieilles Vignes; I liked the 2018 so much that I bought some for my daughter Marina's wedding. Antoine looks after the reds, Isabelle the whites.
