Very exotic, with showy singed hazelnut and matchstick notes in front of unctuous peach, pear, fig, and quince flavors. The honeyed finish flows through with a beautiful feel. Not for everyone, but you can't deny the display of fruit. Drink now through 2020. 1,665 cases made.
Bottled in June 2017, the 2016 Condrieu la Doriane is entirely barrel-fermented in new oak. This vintage seems more restrained and less rich than some others, but it remains marked by smoky, grilled apricot aromas and flavors. It’s nicely balanced and not overly opulent, retaining a sense of elegance on the long, spicy finish.
Brilliant clear pale golden yellow. Nose of white flowers, apricot, white peaches. Intensely powerful and elegant aromas. Freshness, round, rich and full-bodied. Fully expressive of the terroir. Great finesse and freshness. A pleasant light acidity is well balanced with round fleshy fruitiness.
