TASTING NOTES

"This is delightful, with the exotic apricot, nectarine and quince flavors typical of Condrieu but energized by ripples of honeysuckle, verbena and minerality throughout. Reveals an echo of bitter orange through the finish. Drink now through 2022. 700 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Green-hued yellow. Powerful aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits and jasmine are complicated by hints of dusty minerals and Thai basil. Juicy and concentrated on the palate, offering sappy pear nectar, orange pith and honeysuckle flavors that show outstanding clarity and mineral drive. The floral and mineral notes persist on the incisive finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"Pale apricot colour. Light gingery nose with lots of acidity and a candied lily flavour. Not amazingly intense but certainly not air freshener. A little simple at this stage and with some astringency on the finish." JancisRobinson.com
