Concentrated, with focused almond, acacia, mango and dried pineapple flavors. Nice cut to the finish, with lingering anise notes that really open up in the glass. Great mouthfeel. Drink now through 2008. 1,500 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator. A Viognier wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Guigal Condrieu la Doriane 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots producing wines such as ‘La Doriane’ in Condrieu, the famous growths of the Côte-Rôtie ‘La Mouline’, ‘La Turque’ and ‘La Landonne’, Côte-Rôtie Château d’Ampuis, Hermitage ‘Ex-Voto’, produced only in the great vintages and Saint-Joseph ‘Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph’ in red and white, as well as the famous Saint-Joseph red 'Vignes de l’Hospice'. These wines have each become flagships of their appellations. In the cellars of the Guigal estate in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley are produced and aged. These are the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The great appellations of the Southern Rhône; Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône are also aged in the Ampuis cellars. This amazing white is rated 94 points by Robert Parker: "The brilliant 2005 Condrieu La Doriane (aged in 100% new oak) boasts a classic Condrieu nose of buttered almonds, marzipan, lychee nuts, white peaches, and tropical fruits presented in a full-bodied, unctuous format with excellent acidity, depth, and earthiness. It should drink well for several years."
