"Le Secret Ivre is a joint effort between Pierre Gaillard, one of Northern Rhones finest producers, and Kimberly Jones of the excellent import house Shiverick/Jones. The '07 release is 60% viognier and 40% rousanne. The majority of the viognier comes from Condrieu. Aged in neutral oak which lends the wine its creamy texture "Le Secret Ivre" is brimming with white peach and honeysuckle. The extra 10% of viognier in this year's cuvee gives the wine an extra punch of aromatic lift that follows through on the long luxurious finish. There are only 100 cases of this rare treat made so we were lucky to get our hands on some. Bravo Kimberly and Pierre!"
