As with Condrieu, Château-Grillet specialises in the production of Viognier wines. The site was one of the very first appellations created in France (in 1936), and is one of only a small number of French appellations to hold just a single producer (the Clos de Tart Grand Cru vineyard – see below – is one example, as are other numerous Burgundian monopoles). At just 3.5 hectares (9 acres) in size, it is also one of the smallest estates in France. The winemaking history of Château-Grillet goes back to the Third Century, and the distinction of the estate and its wines can be traced throughout the ages. For example, Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, the first wife of Napoleon I, had around 300 bottles of Château-Grillet in her wine cellar and US Minister to France (and later president) Thomas Jefferson visited the property in 1787. Château-Grillet was made a national heritage site in 1976, and in 2011, was bought by French luxury goods billionaire François Pinault, who also owns Château Latour, Clos de Tart and Domaine d'Eugénie in Burgundy, and Eisele Vineyard in Napa. The vineyard is located on the west bank of the northern Rhône, just south of the commune of Condrieu but within the northern section of the Condrieu appellation (itself just five kilometers\/three miles southwest of Ampuis, the heart the Côte-Rôtie). The Condrieu appellation stretches around 16km (10 miles) on this side of the river, from the eponymous commune of Condrieu in the north, through Vérin and Saint-Michel-sur-Rhône (in which the Château-Grillet vines are located) to Limony, the southernmost commune.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T15:17:44-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-27T19:37:56-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château-Grillet","Region_Northern Rhone","RK2703","Source_Hedonism0323","Type_White Wine","Varietal_Viognier"],"price":129899,"price_min":129899,"price_max":129899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42871891296394,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2016 | Château-Grillet | Blanc","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":129899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/77_337d9dc6-ac08-41a3-ba52-bef5efea12e7.jpg?v=1679960328"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/77_337d9dc6-ac08-41a3-ba52-bef5efea12e7.jpg?v=1679960328","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2016 | Château-Grillet | Blanc at CaskCartel.com","id":24479149654154,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.287,"height":341,"width":98,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/77_337d9dc6-ac08-41a3-ba52-bef5efea12e7.jpg?v=1679960328"},"aspect_ratio":0.287,"height":341,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/77_337d9dc6-ac08-41a3-ba52-bef5efea12e7.jpg?v=1679960328","width":98}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eWhite Wine: 2016 | Château-Grillet | Blanc\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDecadent, silky and incredibly long on the palate, it exhibits a wonderful core of honeyed stone fruits with delightful mineral accents.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Château-Grillet\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2016\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 14%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Viognier\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Northern Rhone\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e2016 was an excellent vintage in the region and this is a sublime release with abundant rich fruits but classic zesty freshness.
