Community Tasting Notes 10

October 26, 2015 - Drank over 2.5 hours over dinner at Table@7.
Appearance is clear, pale intensity, yellowish gold colour. Legs.
Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of honey, honeysuckle, white peaches, stony minerality, and a nice touch of petroleum oil emerged as the night wore on. Developed.
On the palate, dry, good medium+ acidity, medium+ alcohol (14.5%), medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of honey, honeysuckle, peaches, lime and limestone, stony minerality, and petroleum oil towards the finish. Acidity does dip a little as the wine warms up in the glass.
Outstanding quality Condrieu. Has a very refined aristocratic feel to it. Not big but stood up to the Indonesian cuisine. Ready to enjoy now. Could last another 2-3 years well.

June 25, 2015 - La Pyramide Dinner (Vienne - Northern Rhone Valley): Intense dried apricot with great fruit intensity and sweet spice aromas. Same flavor profile but coming across with good acidity and more restraint. Layers of flavors, lots of power. Very good now, I'd expect this will hold strong to close to 2020.
September 14, 2014 - A Great French Dinner (Indianapolis, IN): A fantastic white wine. Mixed floral, heather, stone fruits on the nose. Balanced acidity coming through. Great depth to the nose. In the mouth, nothing is lost. Equally balanced, and perhaps the first of several great wines where the nose and the palate are in synchronous harmony. There is weight without being remotely heavy. Supreme balance.1 person found this helpful Comment

July 23, 2014 - Young, but awesome. Lots of variety on the nose - citrus, florals and some tropical touches. Great length, balance and brightness on the palate. Still tight and young, but promising.

September 22, 2013 - A small gathering at Mark's duck house - Grange, A shot in the dark, Rousseau, Yquem and more. (Marks duck house, Falls Church, Va): May be I should stop saying I am not a big fan of northern rhone whites. The initial nose of this wine is very different from la doriane which I tend to find a bit of heat. Incredible freshness, perfectly ripe yellow peach that ringers but no lychee fruits in the beginning. Excellent concentration, sweet ripe fruits but remains very fresh with bright acidity and minerality. With time, more lychee fruit emerges but remains very fresh. My first experience with this wine, a great wine that I need to seek.1 person found this helpful Comment
