Condrieu Invitare Chapoutier 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parkers Wine Advocate: “As to the Condrieu, I was shocked at the quality of both new releases. The entry-level cuvée is the 2015 Condrieu Invitare. A flat-out great example of the appellation, it offers lots of caramelized peaches, tangerine, orange blossom and crushed rock-like characteristics in its rich, yet fresh and elegant style.”

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

Even better is the 2009 St.-Joseph Les Granits. Its opaque purple color is followed by notes of powdered rock blueberry and blackberry liqueur ink and graphite. An enormously endowed full-bodied effort with laser-like focus it should drink well for 15+ years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

This has a very alluring ganache edge, which melds nicely into the core of crushed plum, blackberry and currant notes. Lots of anise and briar emerge on the back end, along with ample toasted spice and incense. The very long finish has riveting acidity, while the fruit and ganache notes echo on and on. Dense but precise. Best from 2015 through 2035.

A perfect wine, the 2009 Ermitage Le Pavillon (1,093 cases) boasts a black/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of acacia flowers, blackberries, blueberries, roasted meats, creme de cassis, truffles, graphite, powdered rock and new saddle leather. Extremely dense, noble and pure, this monumental Ermitage is built for 50–100 years of cellaring.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92From the Coteau de Chery, one of the most privileged hillside sites in Condrieu, comes the 2006 Condrieu Invitare. This is the finest Condrieu Chapoutier has yet made. Wonderful honeysuckle, lychee, and liqueur of rocks is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with terrific acidity, beautifully pure fruit, and a long, heady finish. Condrieu doesnt hold up well with aging, so drink it over the next several years.Wine Tasting NotesDeep golden yellow with a greenish tint. Very fruity, exotic fruit (pineapple, lichee) and acacia flower. Rounded, full, good length with a vanilla taste. 100% Viognier.
