What the Critics say
'Pale yellow. Intensely floral, sexy bouquet of tangerine, white pepper, lavender and brown spices. Very fresh in the mouth, with sweet citrus and pit fruit flavors, tangy mineral bite and a suave chamomile quality. Really clings to the palate, finishing with excellent clarity, lift and thrust. This has the balance to reward patience but is already extremely seductive.' (Jan09)
Opulence in a glass... A condrieu like no other. The Viognier grapes from this 35yr old vineyard is both fermented and matured in new wood which sits nicely in the background. Unlike early drinking styles of Condrieu, 'La Doriane' develops in the bottle and continues to evolve for many years after bottling.
