Color - Golden yellow, characteristic of a great Condrieu Bouquet - Complex nose of apricots, pear, acacia and soft spices accompanied by hints of vanilla Taste - Rich, powerful and aromatic on the palate with a long and elegant finish; intense flavors of lychee nut, peach and exotic fruit. This wine is well balanced, with a fresh, pleasing acidity.
Vinous 91 points - Pale gold. Mineral-tinged aromas of orange zest and fresh pineapple, with hints of crystallized ginger and jasmine. Silky and creamy on the palate, offering lively tangerine and bitter pear skin flavors that put on weight with aeration. Densely packed and concentrated yet lithe, finishing with strong thrust and clinging spiciness.  (Mar 2014)

Wine Spectator 89 points - A plump and forward style, with notes of star fruit, pineapple and yellow apple, backed by a floral edge that lends just enough freshness to the finish. Drink now. 800 cases made.-JM  (Apr 30 2014)

Wine maker notes
Grapes are hand-harvested and de-stemmed. Fermentation takes places in stainless steel tanks at an average temperature of 54F. Fermentation then continues in barrels at approximately 60.8F, making the total fermentation time 3 weeks. The wine is aged in 50% new and 50% 1-year-old oak on the lees for a period of one year. A weekly stirring of the lees during the first few months is followed by malolactic fermentation.
