Les Chaillées de l'Enfer Condrieu Viognier 2015

Popped, about 1.5 hrs slow ox. Just a hair behind my last btl, which was excellent. Another excellent showing with tangerine and honeysuckle, vanilla cream and lovely minerality...starting to hint at those signs of age I don't like in condrieu, however. For my palate, drink up. — 20 days ago

Rose Pourpre Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012

This is phenomenal. So so concentrated. Deep fragrances suggesting tart black plums, wild brambles and blackberries mingle with musky, ferrous scents of blood and perfume. The palate is masterful- sexy and dripping with dark red fruit and savory, salty, primeval flavors. Love this cuvee. ‘12 maybe even better than the ‘15. — 3 days ago

Nice- I love their entry level CDR; you seem to reaping the benefits of a good cellar!

@Peter Sultan a little of that and some Wine-Searcher sleuthing. Definitely hard to find this producer in the states. Seems like they don’t have a current importer… I can only find back vintages from private collections, but the plus is that prices have been very reasonable.

La Chambée Condrieu Viognier 2017

Shockingly good. Classically perfumed/floral — palate dense, somehow oily, and a bit mineral-spicy. Notes of orange rind /orange oil elsewhere are fair. Dazzling length. This is great Condrieu. — 17 days ago

Monier de La Sizeranne Hermitage Syrah

History of Chapoutier family dates back to the early 19th century when current owner Michel Chapoutier’s great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased estate & famous l’Hermitage vineyards. Medium Ruby with aromas of rich red/black fruits and spice. On the palate raspberry, cherry & black currant flavors with notes of oak. Firm tannins, well balanced ending with fruit, spice and cedar. Very nice! Tasting Sample. Has lots of room to bottle evolve. — 12 days ago

Delectable thinks this is a “Viognier blend”? Huh.

Les Terrasses de l'Empire Condrieu Viognier 2018

Pop and pour. Notes from 4 hrs open. On the nose: freshly cut honeysuckle, then loads of flowers, mint, soft honey and wet stone. On the palate: excellent acidity, wet stone, ginger, medicinal herbs, fantastic density. Better than my last btl...definitely one of my condrieu standards. Yum! — a month ago
