Cellar/Tasting Notes
The 2011 Condrieu presents with intensely powerful and elegant aromas of white flowers, apricots and white peaches. On the palate, the wine is fresh, round, rich and full-bodied and fully expressive of the terroir. The wine is balanced with a pleasant light acidity and round fleshy fruitiness.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
"One of the great wines of Condrieu is Guigal’s 2011 Condrieu La Doriane. This remarkably consistent blockbuster is not a single vineyard wine as much of it comes from some of the finest sites in this appellation, such as the Cote Chatillon, Coteau du Chery, Colombier and the aforementioned Lys de Volant. It is capable of lasting 4-5 years, although I recently found a 2001 in my cellar that was drinking sensationally. It was shocking to see how well it was holding up at age 11. The 2011 is superb, offering white peach, honeysuckle, quince, peach marmalade, spring flower and subtle background oak notes. Full-bodied with good minerality and freshness, it is exceptionally well delineated for a wine of this size."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Pale gold. Nectarine, pear and lemon curd on the nose, with complicating vanilla and mineral qualities gaining strength with air. Broad and fleshy but impressively focused, offering juicy orchard fruit flavors and a bitter note of citrus pith. Precise, dry and nervy on the strikingly long, penetrating finish, with its sexy honeysuckle and ginger notes.
