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.
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.
/ 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.
/ 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.
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.
Amour de Dieu Condrieu 2008 - 90 Points, Wine Spectator / This manages to bury the tangy side of the vintage in a core of creamed apple, peach and heather honey notes, all backed by lush butter and pear tartine notes. Forward and ready to go.
