Andre Perret Condrieu 2019


“Brilliant straw. High-pitched orange zest, melon and violet aromas show impressive clarity and take on a suave floral quality with air. Silky and sharply focused on the palate, offering vivid citrus and pit fruit and honeydew flavors complemented by a subtle chamomile quality. Finishes very long and juicy, with resonating florality and strong tenacity. Raised in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, 10% of them new. 93-94 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.”
