Community Tasting Notes 14

    March 13, 2016 - Past peak, but still drinking pretty well. Don't serve directly from the refrigerator - it drinks much better when it is warmed a bit from the fridge.

  • Rich S Likes this wine: 91 points

    December 26, 2013 - Did not delve into this as much as I would have liked but I thought this was a very balanced and well made wine. Mostly mineral, floral, lavendar and citrus notes on both the nose and palate with a slightly oily texture but without the huge mouthfeel and sometimes high alcohol that I tend to get from white wines from this region. Should have bought more at the sale price paid.

    March 12, 2013 - This wine is a lovely Condrieu, drinking nicely now. Perfect with hamachi sashimi, still very good with sea bream.
    The wine looks Yellow gold colored.

    June 5, 2012 - Beautiful florality in the nose, great mouthfeel. Stood up to rich Copper River salmon. Excellent wine!
