Tasting Notes

The base Condrieu from Guigal always delivers and the 2019 Condrieu is stunning stuff, giving up a beautiful bouquet of ripe nectarines, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and exotic flowers. Just classic Condrieu in every way, it's medium to full-bodied, with remarkable purity, a fleshy opulence, and a great, clean finish. Readers looking for a textbook Condrieu can't go wrong with this. It should keep for 7-8 years, although I always prefer these wines in their first 4-5 years of the vintage.

100% Viognier. Tank sample.
Mealy nose – lots of apricot here. A weighty mouthfeel and a subtle touch of oak on the back palate – rich and with great dry extract and minerality on the finish. Carries its hefty alcohol very well. (AC)
