TASTING NOTES

"This historic domaine gets plenty of love for its Condrieu bottlings, but the medium-bodied 2015 Côte Rôtie Blonde du Seigneur is a terrific red. Perfumed of violets and mixed herbs, loaded with compact purple raspberry fruit, it's tannic but ripe, with a long, velvety finish." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"Bright purple. Smoke- and mineral-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas, with licorice and olive paste nuances adding complexity. Sweet, penetrating dark berry and floral pastille flavors are enlivened by a smoky mineral element and pick up a peppery quality with air. Fleshes out slowly on the clinging well-delineated finish, which is framed by harmonious tannins that blend smoothly with the wine's energetic dark fruit. There's impressive energy here considering the warmth on the vintage." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"From the Côte Blonde, with 5% viognier and 30% new oak. This has attractive poached strawberry and cherry fruits as well as sweet pepper and spices. Extremely fresh. Attractive and taut. Elegant. Pure and long cherry and pomegranate. Tannins are fine and laced up firm. Drink now." JamesSuckling.com
