Ratings and Tasting Notes:(AG=93) Green-tinged straw. Incisive orange zest, pear and floral scents are complemented by a chalky mineral overtone and a hint of fennel. Sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors show excellent clarity and become deeper with air while picking up a smoky nuance on the back half. The mineral quality repeats strongly on the impressively long, floral-driven finish. 15% new oak here. (WA=90-92) Fresher and more floral than the bottled 2016, the medium to full-bodied 2017 Condrieu offers apricots, lychees and peppery spices on the nose and palate. It's silky in texture, with a lush, ripe feel on the finish.
