|What experts say|
89/100 "The 2016 Condrieu Les Mandouls features varietally correct notes of spring blossoms and apricots, but it also comes across as tight and underdeveloped. Drink this medium-bodied, restrained example of Condrieu over the next few years."
16.5/20 "Syrupy apricot and peach flavours, concentrated and rich on the palate with a full, juicy, fleshy finish. Not subtle, but this is Condrieu after all! (RH)"
|93/100 "Frankly ripe, with lots of nectarine, apricot and peach flavors, but plenty bright too, with honeysuckle and verbena notes lifting the fruit. A flash of mirabelle plum adds tension on the finish. Drink now through 2020."|
