External Reviews for Guigal Condrieu la Doriane Viognier Wine
Concentrated and much firmer than the regular bottling. Still a bit oak affected. Hint of popcorn. Lively and rich. Racy. Sappy. Long. 17/20 Jancis Robinson.
Pale gold. Nectarine, pear and lemon curd on the nose, with complicating vanilla and mineral qualities gaining strength with air. Broad and fleshy but impressively focused, offering juicy orchard fruit flavors and a bitter note of citrus pith. Precise, dry and nervy on the strikingly long, penetrating finish, with its sexy honeysuckle and ginger notes.
Takes a broad approach, with buttered brioche, creamed melon, glazed pear and warm macadamia nut notes all gliding seamlessly through the fennel-tinged finish. A gorgeous, hedonistic version, featuring a flattering mouthfeel. Drink now through 2015.
One of the great wines of Condrieu is Guigal’s 2011 Condrieu La Doriane. This remarkably consistent blockbuster is not a single vineyard wine as much of it comes from some of the finest sites in this appellation, such as the Cote Chatillon, Coteau du Chery, Colombier and the aforementioned Lys de Volant. It is capable of lasting 4–5 years, although I recently found a 2001 in my cellar that was drinking sensationally. It was shocking to see how well it was holding up at age 11. The 2011 is superb, offering white peach, honeysuckle, quince, peach marmalade, spring flower and subtle background oak notes. Full-bodied with good minerality and freshness, it is exceptionally well delineated for a wine of this size.
Looking at the top cuvee, the 2011 Condrieu La Doriane, which was bottled in June of this year, spent 9 months in 100% new French oak and comes mostly from the Chatillonne and Colombier lieux-dits. It is a brilliant white that dishes out loads of mineral-tinged white currants, buttered apricots, flowers and toast to go with medium to full-bodied richness and depth, great acidity and a blockbuster finish. It can age, but I’d lean toward drinking bottles over the coming 3–5 years at most.
