Tasting Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

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.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Delas Freres is a winery of tradition and renewal. Founded 160 years ago in the heart of the northern Côtes du Rhône, the winery enjoyed the dynamism of its original founders and their heirs and more recently, the renewed energy of the Lallier-Deutz family, owners of champagne house, Champagne Deutz. Delas Freres and Champagne Deutz were acquired by the Champagne House of Louis Roederer in 1993. Andre Lallier retired from daily winery duties in 1996, and Fabrice Rosset, a 20-year executive with Roederer, has taken the helm at both Delas and Deutz. Today, the Delas wines are crafted by a panel of experts headed by winemaker Jacques Grange. Together, the team makes wines that have been heralded for their intensity of flavor and excellent value.
