Positives: Condrieu is Latin for nectar of the gods. (Not really, but it should be!). A simply delightful wine to drink and at the clearance price, seems even better. The wine has a nice balance showing tropical fruit, stone fruit, a touch of minerality with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: I’m not living in Condrieu.

Interesting Point: Don’t over chill this wine, or any Condrieu. It’s beauty must shine.

Drink now on its own or pair it with Foie Gras or lobster with drawn butter.
