Wine SpectatorRipe and lush, offering peach, mango, papaya and nectarine flavors, this nonetheless keeps a sense of purity, with the fruit detail streaming through the creamy, textured finish, picking up a light acacia note along the way. Lovely. Drink now through 2024. 10,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateGuigal now bottles approximately 40% of the appellation's total production, so it's fortunate that the 2016 Condrieu is a fine ambassador for the region. One-third of this bottling sees new oak, while the rest goes into stainless steel. Some may quibble with the oak in an entry-level bottling, but I don't find it excessive. The wine remains floral and fresh, with apricot and melon flavors that finish with modest spice notes and on a silky textural note. Drink it young.
