Brilliant clear golden yellow. Nose is intensely flowery (violets), and fruity (apricot, peaches and citrus). Palate is fresh and round. Rich, unctuous and full bodied. Harmonious with light acidity and round fleshy fruits.Delicate and elegant. Pair with aperitif, fois gras or scrambled eggs and truffles, delicate fish.
Vinous

Limpid yellow. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented pear, white peach and Meyer lemon scents are accompanied by hints of violet, saffron and honey that build with air. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering intense orchard and pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors that are sharpened and lifted by a core of smoky minerality. Finishes sappy, minerally and extremely long, leaving a hint of peach nectar behind. Guigal's "basic" Condrieu is consistently excellent but this one really stands out.

Bright and engaging, with a mix of honeysuckle, plantain, white peach and acacia notes mixed together and carrying through the juicy, rounded finish. Drink now through 2022.

Bottled in June, the 2018 Condrieu is a rich yet elegant Condrieu with classy notes of ripe white peach, tangerine, and grapefruit pith as well as medium-bodied richness. It has a touch of salinity on the palate and is beautifully balanced. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.
