Vintages 2013

eRobertParker.com #216 - Dec 2014

Score : 92

Just bottled in June of this year, the 2013 Condrieu is tighter, more focused and reserved than the 2012. It offers pretty notes of tangerine, mint, citrus blossom and crushed rock to go with a medium-bodied, fresh, focused style on the palate. It will be better in another year and have 2-4 years of longevity. Jeb Dunnuck.

 

Gault & Millau

Score : 16,5/20

Tout le charme des saveurs du Viognier (abricot, violette, verveine, acacia, pêche) bercées par des effluves envoutantes portées par une structure iodée, saline, nerveuse mais sans excès. Beaucoup de fraicheur et de tonicité en finale (amande)
