Community Tasting Notes 2

    September 1, 2019 - 2015 Jean-Luc Colombo Condrieu Amour de Dieu was clear pale lemon without sediments. It had citrus nose of lime and lemon tart, with faint jasmine in a touch of sea breeze. On the palate, it was dry, full-bodied, very spicy with medium acidity and bitter medium finish. The contrast between the nose and the palate was quite unpleasant.
    According to Colombo's website, the grapes from 40-year-old vines were hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks. It was aged sur lie with weekly lees stirring and malolactic fermentation in 15% new and 85% one to four years old oak barrels for ten months.
    It appeared that at four years old, the Condrieu had already lost its floral and honeysuckle flavours. Drinkers not used to aged Viognier should avoid Condrieu with more than three years after the vintage year.

    March 26, 2017 - Sunday lunch with the Wine-Ark boys (Frank's place in Matraville): Muted apricot, slight minerality with time opens up a bit with blossom; almost honeysuckle, and sweet spice. Slightly dusty notes and raw ginger. Again, as time passes the apricot notes on the nose gain more weight and ripeness. Quite sharp but still broadish on the palate with a fair touch of intrusive bitterness on the finish. Hmm. As I've mentioned with time the nose improves but the palate seems a little more reticent.
