A bigger, richer wine, yet still vibrant and fresh, the 2017 Condrieu Côteau du Chery had just been bottled but certainly wasn’t showing any worse for it. It offers more buttered citrus, tangerine, honeysuckle, and white flowers, and is medium to full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated. It picks up plenty of salinity and minerality on the finish and is a great Condrieu that will drink well for 4-5 years. Based just south of the town of Condrieu, Andre Perret continues to fashion some of the most profound Condrieu out there. In addition to his top single vineyards, don’t overlook his base Condrieu as it offers incredible quality and classic characteristics year in, year out. In addition to the Condrieu, he makes two elegant Saint Josephs that are closer in style to a Côte Rôtie than a Saint Joseph from the southern part of the appellation.
His most harmonious cuvée this year, Perret's 2017 Chéry, matured in 20% new oak, has subtle white peach running through the thick, full-bodied palate. It's just ripe enough to give a pleasantly juicy finish. The alcohol is high but has just enough fruit to bring balance. Very rich, but retains a sense of elegance.Drinking Window 2018 - 2020. (MW)
Brought up in 20% new oak, the 2013 Condrieu Coteau du Chery is a bigger, richer, more concentrated wine in the vintage than the Clos Chanson (which is the opposite from 2014). A touch unruly at the moment and in need of six to 12 months in bottle, it offers serious notes of caramelized stone fruits, apple blossom and honeysuckle to go with full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate, and plenty of cut and definition on the finish. It should be at its best from 2017-2021. (JD) 93+
