...the 2014 Condrieu la Doriane is neck and neck with the 2013 in terms of quality. It too has sensational, full-throttle notes of tangerines, spice, buttered peach and citrus oil in a medium to full-bodied, elegant, vibrant personality...enjoy bottles through 2020. eRobertParker.com

Rich and unctuous. The wine shows some oak and a super full bodied texture. Not for everyone but a benchmark for its style.

Very unusual. 100% new oak but the Viognier handles it!

2014 Guigal Condrieu La Doriane Wow. This wine is amazing. I love Viognier and drink a fair amount of domestic Viognier from solid producers like Alban, Roar, Reynvaan, Jeff Cohn, Favia and Herman Story. I love those wines but this is a different animal. This wine redefines the category. Impeccable balance, unbelievable minerality and a finish that lasts 45 seconds. This is a white wine that evolves in the glass in front of you and it is a 2014. I had this alone and then with food, Nicoise salad and it was great with ample acidity. This is a Viognier that is made like a Grand Cru white burgundy. My eyes have been opened to what is possible with this grape. BRAVO

Nice oily La Doriane. Good with scallops and breakfast. Could use a few more years

I am a sucker for good vintages of this wine. The 2014 is no exception. Exotic nose of tropical fruits and acacia. Rich and viscous on the palate, with good acidity and surprising balance. Well done GUIGAL.

14' E Guigal La Doriane Condrieu. An outstanding Viognier! A wine you can just sip on a hot summers day. Welcoming guests & family as they arrive to your home. From appetizers/lunch/dinner. It's one of the most versatile varietals. (my opinion) I can smell & taste so many things in this FULL-BODIED wine. PEACHES/floral/perfumed nose. On the palate I get tangerine, peach, honey, medium oak. A little spice & well balanced acidity/minerality throughout the class. Everything I could want in a great Viognier. The Somm thinks the 13' is drinking better now? I'm certain he's right. The 14' is tasting absolutely delicious tonight. A little more time in the bottle, might be beneficial. (Just another thought ) California Viognier's often criticized for not having enough minerality to it ? Okay ...I can still love them all!!
