E. Guigul 2009 La Doriane - 91-92pts

E. Guigul 2009 La Doriane (Condrieu) Rhone Valley - France

Availability: Specialty wine shops
Cost: $90-120
Alcohol: 14.5%
Date Tasted: October 16th, 2012

Tasting Notes: A powerhouse Viognier from Condrieu with cured meats, violet, pear and apple aromas on the intensely rich nose. The palate is unctuous; oozing concentrated flavours of apricots, pears, lychee, minerals and light spices through to a long-lived and balanced finish. Lifted acidity keeps the fullness in check. Should develop nicely for a decade. Drink 2012-2019.
