Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Very rich and forward, with superripe quince, fig and glazed pear notes backed by a long finish filled with apple and honey. More broad and open, without the minerally drive of the best. Drink now. 300 cases made." –JM (Apr 30, 2008)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Light yellow. Bright citrus aromas are deepened by coconutty oak and sharpened by a candied ginger quality. Fresh and mineral-driven, with impressive energy to the orange and white peach flavors. A late note of candied violet adds complexity to the long, juicy finish. I could knock off a bottle of this in no time. Barruol suggests serving Condrieu with Thai food." - Josh Raynolds (Jan/Feb 07)
