Insane confectionary nose. Guava and pineapple; creamsicle and honeysuckle. Fantastic density. Incredibly open and aromatic. So sexy.

@Delectable Wine this is Condrieu.

Gorgeous and succulent nose. Honey, such pure honey, amazing freshness, creamy, floral. So good. Palate is ripe but also incisive and linear with great freshness and such purity. Acid is medium plus but freshness is more a function of minerality. One of the most mineral Viogniers I can remember. Terrific texture and so so straight. Elegant, complex and with just the right amount of tropical fruit and then a washing mineral finish.

Muted stage but unfurled over the evening. Opulence tempered by minerality. Free of flab. Alcohol well-integrated. Tropical fruits, marzipan. Florals. Also - condrieu pairs amazingly with BBQ sauce (enjoyed with sweetbreads) 😍 @Lyle Fass

Small unknown Rhône producer.

Maybe the most delicious dry wine I’ve ever had. That does not mean the best. It’s very good. But the most delicious.

Nose is balanced tropical fruit and some floral elements. Nice. As it opens (45 minutes) tropical fruit perfume. Pure Amazon jungle.

The palate is sick. The most perfect elegant tropical fruit cocktail ever. A touch of honey. Not overblown. Just perfect. You could drink an entire bottle in about 5 minutes. So good. Juicy and delicious. Not super mineral. Lovely texture. Announces its presence in a clear yet unobtrusive way. Like an English butler.

Finish is lovely tropical fruit. Long. Juicy. Echoes of large stone minerality. Maybe some nuttiness.
