Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The only 2013 from Condrieu I was able to taste, the 2013 Condrieu Les Terrasses de l’Empire is another smoking white from this estate that does everything right. Classic, pure, with terrific minerality in its tangerine, dried pineapple, citrus and orange-blossom-scented bouquet, this beauty is fresh and focused on the palate, with juicy acidity, medium-bodied depth and richness and a seamless, gulpable style that’s impossible to resist. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years.||Christine Vernay is at the top of her game and readers looking for the best Condrieu has to offer need look no further. In addition, the quality of her Cote Roties (she has roughly three hectare in the southern part of the appellation) has skyrocketed recently. This is an estate that, without a doubt, merits your attention and hard-earned money. eRobertParker.com.December, 2014
