While very good this classic Condrieu must take a back seat to the 4000-bottle cuvee of 2009 Condrieu Clos Boucher which ranks alongside Guigal's Condrieu La Doriane. The Clos Boucher possesses a light gold color as well... While very good this classic Condrieu must take a back seat to the 4000-bottle cuvee of 2009 Condrieu Clos Boucher which ranks alongside Guigal's Condrieu La Doriane. The Clos Boucher possesses a light gold color as well as a stunning bouquet of marmalade apricot jam white flowers lychee nuts and honeysuckle. A rare extraordinary minerality gives a laser-like focus to this enormously endowed white wine. It admirably demonstrates why Condrieu can offer such a singular drinking experience.

Green-tinted yellow. Fresh nectarine on the nose with notes of orange peel violet and smoky herbs adding complexity. Juicy and plump showing energetic citrus and pit fruit flavors and a strong touch of anise. Minerality... Green-tinted yellow. Fresh nectarine on the nose with notes of orange peel violet and smoky herbs adding complexity. Juicy and plump showing energetic citrus and pit fruit flavors and a strong touch of anise. Minerality builds with air and adds focus to this deeply concentrated but lithe wine which closes on a strong spicy note and with excellent length. -JR

100% viognier. About 600 cases at most are only made in the best vintages. 70% of the juice was fermented in new oak. This cuvée is a step up in complexity as compared to the "La Galopine" with brighter acidity and more... 100% viognier. About 600 cases at most are only made in the best vintages. 70% of the juice was fermented in new oak. This cuvée is a step up in complexity as compared to the "La Galopine" with brighter acidity and more lifted aromas. Subtle talc-like textures lie underneath some concentrated flavors of ripe pears that show creamy textures. Another example of Delas' ability to show richness without going overboard. Drink in the next 6-8 years.
