Wine Expert Note:

This wine is a remarkable expression of Condrieu, which is more about sheer elegance than power. The nose is a shimmering gold color. The wine's perfume is intense and capable of filling the room with the scent of ripe yellow peach, apricot, and jasmine. The palate is full-bodied, with a slightly oily glycerol texture effortlessly balanced by lean acidity. The finish is incredibly long, expansive, and perfumed. This wine is exceptional and a rare treat that is best drunk young, within its first 5 years while its powerful aromatic are on full display. Serve with roast chicken at any time during the holiday season.
