Vintages 2012

Wine Advocate #210 - Dec 2013

Score : 93

Even better, the 2012 Condrieu (same elevage as the 2011) is a slightly fresher effort that offers vibrant white peach, apricot, flowers and assorted tropical notes. Possessing awesome acidity and freshness, yet still showing the texture and depth of the appellation and variety, it is a knockout Condrieu to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years.  Jeb Dunnuck

A textbook Condrieu, with alluring creamed peach, apricot and ginger notes backed by almond cream and anise details on the finish. The lightly toasted finish lingers. Drink now. 9,000 cases made. James Molesworth
