What experts says    
88 "About as textbook as they get, the 2013 Condrieu from the team of Francois Villard and Luc Baudet is loaded with notions of ripe apricot, while flowers, white peach and honeysuckle. Pure, elegant, medium-bodied, fleshy and textured, it has everything in the right place, is beautifully balanced and has a clean, dry finish. In short, readers looking for a classic Condrieu should check it out."
