Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
The 2018 Condrieu la Galopine (tasted blind at the Maison des Vins in Tain l'Hermitage) is vaguely floral and citrusy. Medium-bodied, it comes across as quite lean and lemon-lime on the palate, without the generosity shown by the company's Clos Boucher bottling. Drink it over the next few years.
The base 2018 Condrieu Galopine is terrific and well worth seeking out. Classic apricot, orange blossom, and white flower notes, as well as a kiss of honeyed minerality, define the bouquet. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, has a plush, sexy texture, moderate acidity, but a fresh, clean finish. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 2-3 years.
