Julien Pilon 'Lone' Condrieu
Julien Pilon is a winemaker located in the Northern Rhône, near Condrieu. He studied winemaking and worked with people like Yves Cuilleron, Mas Amiel and Pierre-Jean Villa, and finally started his own project from scratch, making his first vintage in 2010 in his parent's garage. Step by step, he built his own brand, up to the point of purchasing his own cellar in the summer of 2020. Julien Pilon's estate is a modest 5 hectares, the rest of the production is sourced from his neighbors.
"Alluring, with creamy-textured melon, pear and apricot flavors, infused with subtle almond, orange blossom and anise notes. A subtle mineral edge peeks in, as the lengthy finish plays out. Drink now. 93 points. Wine Spectator. "
