"Translucent yellow. Seductively perfumed aromas of passion fruit, pear nectar, white peach and orange zest, along with suggestions of jasmine and tarragon. At once concentrated and lively, offering vibrant, mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit flavors that are complicated by a suave, steadily building floral nuance. Finishes with a strong jolt of minerality, repeating florality and noteworthy persistence. This wine's blend of power and finesse is quite something. Drinking window: 2022-2030. 95 points

Two thousand-nineteen gave somewhat riper fruit than 2018, Perret told me, "but 2018 is, by historical standards, quite a ripe vintage, itself." While the Condrieus from 2017 to 2019, may not age as slowly as those from 2016 or 2015, what they might sacrifice in cellar-worthiness they more than make up for in sheer deliciousness."
