E. Guigal La Doriane Condrieu Viognier 2015

$145

Easily one of the greatest Condrieu I’ve ever tasted is the 2015 Condrieu La Doriane. A wine that needs to be tasted to be believed, it possesses a huge nose of toasted brioche, liquid rocks, apricot, flower oil and salty minerality. Unctuous, full-bodied, massively rich, yet also elegant and graceful, with beautiful freshness, enjoy this tour de force over the coming 5-6 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee. Incredible hosting by Joe. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine, all tasted blind. Wonderful. A stunner. I called this Condrieu Viognier. Floral and minty, gaining ginger and peach on the nose as it opened. Low acidity. Lychee and white flower on the palate. Incredible expression.

Spring day in a glass. So many things happening with the nose. Has the classic weight of a well made Condrieu. Drinks well right now.

Medium gold; explosive Condrieu nose; lush peachy-pear and ripe apricot palate; with a silky, glycerol mouthfeel and lingering finish. Just lovely.

Fantastic nose but didn’t get confirmed drinking it. Had expected much more based on the professional scores. Edgy, almost bitter without a pleasant finish.

Intense stone fruit but heavy oak. Needs a few years to settle
