Lastly, the 2016 Condrieu Coteau de Vernon is cut from the same cloth yet has more density and length. Just about perfection in a glass with its salty sea breeze, citrus zest, tangerine, and pit fruits, this medium to full-bodied Condrieu hits the palate with incredible purity of fruit, integrated acidity, and perfect balance. It shows the balance, focus, and purity that’s the hallmark of the 2016 vintage in Condrieu. It’s a heavenly Condrieu I wish every reader could taste. Jeb Dunnuck

Extremely juicy and bold, with a captivating range of apricot, nectarine and tangerine flavors liberally inlaid with white ginger, singed almond and bitter orange notes. The unctuous finish flaunts its power but there’s drive and detail here to match. Hedonists will dig this. Drink now through 2024. From France. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Pale yellow-gold. Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of fresh pear, white peach, honey and jasmine pick up vibrant orange zest and saffron accents as the wine opens up. Silky and broad on the palate, offering densely packed orchard and pit fruit flavors energized by a jolt of juicy acidity and a smoky mineral note. Shows superb power and mineral thrust on the penetrating, extremely long finish, which leaves behind suggestions of bitter orange pith and iodine. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

Nearly always one of the top wines of the appellation, the 2016 Condrieu Coteaux du Vernon, from vines planted in 1936 and 1960, doesn't disappoint. Aged in 25% new oak, it does show hints of toast and mocha but also incredible floral and spice aromas. Apricot and pineapple fruit flood the medium to full-bodied palate yet never seem heavy despite a sensation of silken richness. It has a wonderfully succulent texture married to tremendous focus and length. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent results. Joe Czerwinski - The Wine Adovcate
