Condrieu "Les Mandouls" 2016 - Ferraton Père & Fils


A brilliant and classy Condrieu - from this tiny appellation situated next to Côte-Rôtie producing unique full-bodied and fruity white wines. It shows explosive aromas of apricot, peach and white flowers with a hint of honey on the finish. An elegant, subtle and rich white you cannot compare to anything else - which is what makes Condrieu so special!

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."
