Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Rich, but showing good tension and focus, with a bitter orange note helping the peach, nectarine, yellow apple and quince flavors zip along, while light verbena and honeysuckle details chime in on the brioche-accented finish. Drink now through 2020. 445 cases made." - JM (Nov 2017)

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"Pale gold. Highly perfumed orchard and pit fruit scents, along with hints of lemon pith, violet and honey. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering concentrated peach, pear nectar and candied ginger flavors underscored by a vein of dusty minerality. Finishes very long and smooth, featuring lingering florality and a whiplash of smoky minerals. This is the most impressive version of this consistently fine bottling I've ever tasted." - Josh Raynolds (July 2017)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Striking apricots and lightly spicy, gingery elements. There's an attractive freshness and fruit purity. The palate delivers a wealth of ripe, flavorsome apricot fruit. Delicious wine. Drink now." (Sept 2017)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Most people don’t know it, but Saint Cosme’s Louis Barruol makes a terrific white wine from his estate in Gigondas, and that winemaking talent carries over to his release from Condrieu. His 2015 Condrieu is a beautifully perfumed, richly textured, pure and classic white that offers abundant notes of tangerines, flower oil and buttered citrus. It has juicy acidity and a great finish, and will drink nicely for 3-5 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (Dec 2016)
