White wine Guigal Masterclass (Stockholm): Golden yellow colour. Nose with some damp straw, some honey, spice, some yellow fruit, a hint of oxidation. Full bodied on the palate, spice, straw, a hint of honey, some mineral, rather low acidity, slightly nutty. 89 p? Surprisingly good, since Condrieu has a reputation of not being suitable for cellaring. This wine shows a lot of similarity to mature Marsanne wines, so I’d never have guessed Viognier or Condrieu in a blind tasting.
A very subdued nose for a viognier, with a few light green and yellow fruits but little floral or honeysuckle notes. Slightly oily texture, and a slight alcohol note as well, but with honied pineapple and apricot flavours. Not a very typical Condrieu, probably showing its vintage, but a nice enough wine overall (B+).
