E. Guigal Condrieu La Doriane 2016
JD96: The flagship 2016 Condrieu La Doriane also shows the freshness and more classical style of the vintage. Citrus blossom, crushed rocks, honeysuckle, and orange blossom give way to a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant Condrieu that gains depth and richness with time in the glass. It will be better this time next year and keep for 7-8 years.
WS95: Very exotic, with showy singed hazelnut and matchstick notes in front of unctuous peach, pear, fig, and quince flavors. The honeyed finish flows through with a beautiful feel. Not for everyone, but you can't deny the display of fruit. Drink now through 2020. 1,665 cases made, 150 cases imported.
