Leading off the 2015 whites, the 2015 Condrieu is a blockbuster that delivers gorgeous notes of apricot, white flowers, tangerine, and crushed rocks. Offering a level of depth and richness normally reserved for the La Doriane cuvée, it’s full-bodied, layered, pure, and straight up delicious. Drink 2018-2024.
Guigal’s 2015 Condrieu is a blockbuster that, if not for its big brother, would be one of the wines of the vintage. Aged in one-third new barrels and two-thirds in tank, it’s a rich, unctuous, thrillingly textured beauty that has plenty of orange blossom, flower oil, tangerine and peach. Fruit-loaded, with just a touch of minerality, it should be drunk over the coming 2-4 years.
This has a wealth of richness and complexity with peach custard and apricot pastry aromas echoed on the plush, smooth and sweepingly attractive palate. Drink now.
Pale gold. High-pitched orchard and pit fruit and floral scents show excellent clarity and a hint of dusty minerals. Densely packed yet energetic on the palate, showing impressive clarity to the white peach, pear, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors. The mineral note repeats on the impressively long finish, which shows outstanding focus and intensity. (JR)
Lush and generous, this is textbook Condrieu from the appellation’s largest producer. Subtle ginger notes add an exotic edge to the ripe apricot, mango and lychee flavors, then persist on the long finish. (JC)
Heather, creamed melon, pear and glazed peach notes form a flattering, hedonistic core, while light honeysuckle and ginger hints add nuance and range through the finish. Drink now through 2020. (JM)
