93pts James Suckling

Attractive, fresh apricots and white nectarines. White flowers, too. Very fresh and bright. The smooth and even palate has a very rich and concentrated core of apricots. Super-ripe and super-fresh.

 

91pts Jeb Dunnuck

Leading off with the two Condrieu releases, the 2017 Condrieu offers an exotic, fresh, vibrant style that’s going to gain weight with time in bottle. Terrific notes of pineapple, green citrus, and a hint of minerality all flow to a medium-bodied, balanced beauty that I’d be happy to own in quantity. For a hot, hot vintage, the estate preserved freshness and purity.

Whiffs of sun-kissed grain or hay are restrained on the nose, but the palate of this voluminous Viognier bursts of peach, honeysuckle and apricot. It’s lavish and textured, with a long, warming finish marked by layers of saffron and candle wax. Vintus LLC

  

Winemaker Notes

Harmony between a beautiful freshness and a fruit that bathes in a fleshy roundness. A remarkable minerality in this vintage.
