Maison Nicolas Perrin Condrieu Blanc - 2010

AOC Condrieu



The 2010 Condrieu reveals the exotic, lychee nut, tropical fruit side of this appellation, but less minerality than some of the finest examples of Condrieu. Nevertheless, it is a very good effort to enjoy over the next several years.

A very fresh, almost high-tone style, this offers chamomile and honey suckle flavors to lead the way, followed by green almond, white peach, fennel and quinine notes. The long, racy finish has extra mineral drive, setting this apart from the more tropical-style Condrieu. Gorgeous cut.
