TASTING NOTES

"Green-hued straw-yellow. Penetrating citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of chalky minerals and violet. Juicy and concentrated but lively in style, offering vibrant pear and Meyer lemon flavors that show strong mineral drive and sharp focus. The mineral note carries emphatically through the incisive finish, which lingers with strong persistence." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"The apricots here are ripe, vibrant and fresh with gently spicy nuances. The acidity is nicely weighted, fresh and crisp, giving a bright finish. This is the second vintage of this blend of two parcels, Côte Chatillon and Vernon. Hence the name of the cuvée. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"In only its second vintage, the 2016 Condrieu Vernillon has seemingly hit its stride. Aged half in barrels and half in stainless steel, it's not that floral but instead is richly textured, loaded with ripe apricot flavors. It has a plump, succulent feel to it, then finishes with lingering hints of spice and honey. Delicious now, it should drink well for a few years." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"Apricot, peach, thick palate with a rich but savoury finish. Manages to deliver good acidic spine on the finish." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
