Press Reviews:

`Apricot and peach with a slightly cooked style to it. Fleshy and thick, with smooth texture and low acidity. Finishes with long, sweet creaminess. Drink 2017-2020`

`Bravo, enfin, to Pierre-Jean Villa, for a long time the least well known of the four partners in Les Vins de Vienne but a man who certainly knows a thing or two about Condrieu, It’s uplifting to see his solo efforts performing so well and to share a few moments with him in the Jardin Suspendu, a wonderfully evocative name in itself, capturing something of the whimsical and generous nature of the entire appellation. [...] Classic aromas of honeysuckle, nectarine, and white pepper; generous and immediately seductive; an Anita Ekberg cascade of voluptuous fruit, a dense mouthfeel with glycerol and waxy grip; an almost tannic energy, but no lack of concentration and an eloquent peroration that underscores the virtues of measured excess.`
