The magnetic attractions of Condrieu have seen much planting of Viognier both elsewhere in France and around the world and yet, mysteriously, the sensual identity of wines grown on the original 202 ha of granite sands seems hard to duplicate. Aromatic richness is very much part of that -- yet what our judges liked about this Condrieu was its aromatic subtlety: the flower-strewn apricot fruit is there, yet it comes with a redeeming freshness. On the palate, the wine is rich and suggestive: oranges and ginger as well as apricot, yet there’s plenty of cleansing stone and refreshing bitter notes to keep the rich fruit on its toes.
