The 2016 Condrieu Invitare is fresh, clean and balanced, avoiding any of the oiliness that can sometimes creep into Viognier. Lightly floral on the nose, it shows honeydew and apricot flavors, medium to full body, and hints of white pepper and tannin on the long finish. It should drink well for several years. (JC)
The base-level Condrieu is the 2016 Condrieu Invitare, which comes from vines throughout the appellation (more from the northern part). It's a great wine for readers looking to understand Condrieu and has classic notes of apricots, citrus blossom and distinct minerality, with the richness the variety is known for, while staying fresh and lively.
Limpid yellow. Lively, sharply focused aromas of fresh citrus and pit fruits and pungent flowers. A firm spine of acidity supports juicy tangerine and white peach flavors that deepen steadily as the wine opens up. A chalky mineral note adds cut to a nervy, sharply focused, persistent finish that leaves a zesty citrus fruit note behind. (JR)
