The 2009 Condrieu La Doriane (15% natural alcohol) exhibits explosive aromas of white peaches, anise, orange marmalade, honeysuckle and crushed rocks. Stunning freshness, minerality and definition characterize this blockbuster Condrieu. It should drink well for a decade. - Robert Parker

Pure and long, with gorgeous fig, anise and creamed pear notes that sail through. Buried minerality and a lilting floral note hang on through the finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,600 cases made. –JM

Musky aromas of casaba melon, lime pith and candied ginger, with slow-building smokiness. Sappy, dense and mineral-driven, at once opulent and tightly focused, with lovely spicy lift contributing energy to its deep honeydew and orchard fruit flavors. The minerality drives a long, spicy, impressively powerful finish. - Josh Raynolds

This wine's scent is pure pleasure—a trio of florals, stone fruit and earth with the sort of balance achieved only in Condrieu. The wine gets even better on the palate, the peach blossom aromas lifting the flavors, the light toastiness of the fruit and its golden hues as warming and ethereal as the sun's rays. It's opulent and lasting with racy acidity, a wine to showcase next to a simple roast lobster with drawn butter.
