Condrieu Amour de Dieu 2011 - 90 points, International Wine Cellar/ Light, bright yellow. Fresh, floral-accented peach and pear aromas are brightened by notes of green tea and dusty minerals. Juicy and light on its feet, offering bright orchard fruit flavors and a touch of anise. Fleshy but lithe, finishing with very good clarity and a hint of succulent herbs.
Daily Wine Picks/ Very pure, with a lovely, creamy mouthfeel. Sports melon, mango, peach and butter notes, with a fine minerality buried on the finish. Drink now through 2008.
/ Light gold. Ripe pear and peach on the nose, with a smoky herb quality adding complexity. Fleshy, ripe and round, with deep pit fruit flavors. Soft, fruity and ready to drink.
Condrieu Amour de Dieu 2012 - 91 points, International Wine Cellar/ Pale gold. Mineral-tinged aromas of orange zest and fresh pineapple, with hints of crystallized ginger and jasmine. Silky and creamy on the palate, offering lively tangerine and bitter pear skin flavors that put on weight with aeration. Densely packed and concentrated yet lithe, finishing with strong thrust and clinging spiciness.
/ Perfumed aromas of mandarin orange and tangerine candy are bright and floral, leading to a burst of stone fruit flavors. The 40-year-old vines here give this a firm and concentrated depth, and while this is aged in 100 percent new oak, the balance is impeccable, adding layers of texture and giving the wine a sense of refinement and grace.
Condrieu Amour de Dieu 2011 - 90 points, The Rhone Report/ Made in a very clean and classy style, the barrel-fermented Condrieu offers textbook white flowers, citrus, and mineral qualities along with a medium-bodied, juicy, and lively palate. Well put together, with an overall balanced, delicious profile that gains steam in the glass, it should be enjoyed over the coming 4-5 years.
Amour de Dieu Condrieu 2005 - 88 Points, International Wine Review/ Made from 40 year old Viognier vines and barrel fermented (100% new oak) on its lees, this clean, fresh yellow gold Condrieu shows aromas of minerals, honey, and ripe fruit with a note of pine needle. On the palate there's a nice integration of minerals, ripe peach and tropical fruit with a note of lemon zest. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in the barrel, leading to a softness that is nicely offset by good acidity.
