A smaller production release that comes from the steep slope just to the south of where the Terrasses de l’Empire comes from, the 2012 Condrieu Les Chaillées de l’Enfer has terrific tangerine, citrus blossom, brioche and subtle apricot aromas and flavors. From vines planted in 1957, and aged 12 months in 25% new French oak, it’s a medium to full-bodied, vibrant, gorgeously pure effort to drink over the coming 2-3 years. Of the three releases, this is the most classic. - Jeb Dunnuck

A lively style, with a piercing feel to the anise, kiwifruit and quince flavors, followed by intense mirabelle plum, pear eau-de-vie and green almond notes. The long, minerally edge holds the finish.

Decanter,
More yellow peach in fruit with some warm spices. Full-bodied but not fat. The wine has tension although the acidity is fairly low. Gentle but powerful, long and pure. Luxurious texture; lots to enjoy.
