Really nice CdP coasting in its prime. Good vibrant garnet color and an enticing savory mature fruited earthy nose that opened in half hour. Lively texture and palate, good long finish. — 2 years ago
Needs a bit to open up and show the exotic nose with pineapple, ripe quince, some freshly grated ginger, a whiff of cardamon, a touch of toasted almonds, a hint of dried herbs countering the exotic sweetness. So complex and so enticing.
Gorgeous mouthfeel, full bodied yet so fresh. Very, very elegant with ripe soft yellow orchard apples & white peach, fresh bright acidity and spicy minerality. With time this loses the initial sweet, fruity touch and turns more savoury, mineral, the salty kick in the finish becoming more pronounced. Impeccably poised & balanced. There’s nice energy here and great depth. Elegant yet vibrant.

Bought a couple of bottles of this for myself. Marsanne-Roussane blend from a biodynamic grower. Wright and body, and a richer fruit profile. Doesn’t have the oak of their Condrieu. — a month ago
Drinking perfectly at the moment…balanced, mellowed out tannins — 7 months ago
