The 2018 Condrieu Les Terrasses de L'Empire has a portion brought up in oak, all being used, and it's always a great introduction into the wines of this estate. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless, it has terrific purity (especially given the heat in the vintage) as well as lots of white flower, salted citrus, tangerine, and a kiss of rocky minerality. Nicely concentrated as well as balanced, this brilliant wine is not far off the two pricier releases.
Vernay's entry-level Condrieu—the 2018 Condrieu les Terrasses de l'Empire—strikes a fine balance between ebullience and restraint, plushness and structure. Flowers and apricots are joined by hints of white pepper in this medium to full-bodied effort. Still showing a bit of dissolved carbon dioxide, it's zesty and fresh, with a hint of citrus pith on the finish. (JC)
