91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2006

($50) Bright gold. Classic Condrieu perfume of fresh peach, apricot pit, pear, apple skin, violet and minerals. Lush and broad on the palate but showing strong minerality and dry, tangy orchard fruit flavors. According to Philippe, this finished with only 1.2 grams per liter of residual sugar. The powerful finish shows a refreshingly bitter note of quinine along with sweeter tones of melon and star fruit.
