Had the 2009. Distinct notes of peaches, vanilla and stone fruit with a touch of savoriness at the end of the medium+ finish. Disappointing acidity level though (medium-). Deep yellow-gold color and medium bodied with typical oiliness/viscosity in the mouth. Overall good.

16.5/20 (91/100)

Аромат неколько закрытый, сдержанный. Персик, пряности, белые цветы. Кислотность не высокая, тело полное, вкус пряный, с грушей, очень легкой горчинкой, минеральный.

I suspect this just went over the hill but it's still packed with flavor and a rich, layered texture. There is still enough acidity around the edges lending structural support.

Lemon lime, grapefruit, wet stone, stone fruit with nectarine and apricot, whiffs of chamomile and floral blossoms, vanilla and hint of honey and ginger showing some bottle age, high abv and full-bodied, not my style of Viognier but signature Condrieu from the region, on the pricey side for the taste

16+/20 (88+/100) Много тонов редукции и дуба из-под которых проглядывают ароматы персиков и цитрусовых. Довольно тельное и кислотное вино. Свежее во вкусе. Молодо. (13.04.17) #DVR2017
