 Tasted by tmoritz1 on 7/26/2008 & rated 90 points: Deep golden color and a very subtle nose of vanilla and peach flavors. Very smooth and easy to drink. Not very unique but very predicable and easily appreciated as a good exampple of an old world Viognier (1894 views)
 Tasted by Vinoguy on 11/22/2004: Sommelier's Monthly Meeting - Nov 2004 (The Bistro): This is the first Condrieu I've tasted and I was told that this was an atypical example of it. Does this really retail at £19.99?

The appearance was of a mid golden yellow colour and it was a little mute on the nose with just a hint of tropical fruits and lemons showing. In the mouth it was quite big with flavoursome tones of peaches, tropical fruits and vanilla following through in a decent lengthy finish. An enjoyable and interesting wine but nothing to get excited about. (3302 views)

Winedoctor, April 2001
(Guigal Condrieu) A pale lemon gold, with a nose of apricots, peaches, and just the barest hint of pine nuts. Quite elegant and restrained, and still quite youthful and tight on the palate. Good fruit with the beginnings of a rich texture, well balanced with fresh acidity, this wine will probably drink better in a year or so.  15 points

Winedoctor, December 2000
(Guigal Condrieu) A good, smoky, pine kernel peachy nose. Fresh pine kernels and stone fruit on the palate, with good acidity and attractive weight.  15.5 points

The Rhône Valley/Le Vins de la Vallée du Rhône (Comité Interprofession des vins AOC Côtes et vallée du Rhône)

Regional History:
Phocaean Greeks established viticulture in the Rhone as far back as 600 BC, but until the 14th century the wines were not seen outside the region. The establishment of the Avignonese Papacy (1305-1377) brought fame to the region's wine-so much so that their Burgundian neighbors to the north banned wines from the Rhone in 1446, a measure that effectively cut off trade with England and other Northern European markets for over 200 years. Stretching southward from Lyon to just south of Avignon, the Rhone produces a wide variety of wines, with the appellations north of Valence producing the least (in volume), and the towns south of Montelimar producing prodigious amounts. As in other regions, the most interesting wines come from small farms. Saint-Joseph, in the northern Rhone, extends for some distance between Condrieu in the north to Saint-Peray in the south. The reds are made from Syrah and the rare whites from Marsanne and Rousanne, and Viognier.

2013 Vintage Notes:
"Philippe Guigal has described this year’s fruit from the northern Rhône as “astonishing” in quality, in sharp contrast to reports of a problematic vintage in the southern part of the valley and elsewhere in France."
