Community Tasting Notes 7

    May 2, 2014 - Structured and complex with mineral, lees, floral, lemon notes. Leave it a few more years.

    December 25, 2012 - The nose is showing more leesy notes now with a creaminess reminiscent of profiteroles. Peach, apricot, and granitic mineral tones follow with a pistachio nutty note that implies this wine is best drunk now rather than later. This wine coats the palate with a weight that few outside Condrieu can match. A beautiful wine. Paired well with turkey and enjoyed by all. Don't wait, pop the cork now.

    December 4, 2012 - Faint but pretty nose of light honeysuckle, white flowers, palate is lean and lithe, with notes of dried pineapple/apricot, quickly transitioning to a dry, steely, mineral finish, with touches of creamy chalkiness; an elegant, and somewhat airy wine, though with plenty of interest and complexity. Sleek comes to mind, and delicious. A previous note tried to compare this to the Gangloff version, which is unfair - that wine is a freak (a delicious freak) with its wild intensity and depth. The Faury is not a wine for those seeking a more voluptuous style. This is the Hepburn of Condrieu - take your pick, Audrey or Katharine, while the Gangloff is Sophia Loren.

    October 13, 2012 - Not my bag, but good. A bit chalky. More acidic than expected. Not as good as the Yves gangloff in side by side.

    July 28, 2012 - Lovely nose - somewhat foody with honey and biscuit with mineral chalky notes. Soft, balanced. Long nutty finish.
