Condrieu, Etienne Guigal 2015

Guigal’s 2015 Condrieu is a blockbuster that, if not for its big brother, would be one of the wines of the vintage. Aged in one-third new barrels and two-thirds in tank, it’s a rich, unctuous, thrillingly textured beauty that has plenty of orange blossom, flower oil, tangerine and peach. Fruit-loaded, with just a touch of minerality, it should be drunk over the coming 2-4 years.
|Score: 95||Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016|
Very advanced and appealing on the nose. Smoky layer on top of very textbook Viognier nose – peachy with blossom and already charming. Slight bitterness on the end gives it edge.
|Score: 16.5||Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, October 2016|
Strong apricot scent plus honeysuckle and jasmine. Fat, broad and fulsome – so much so that the finish risks being slightly shapeless – but this isn’t so unusual for Condrieu. (RH)
