Wine Advocate-Parker :
Always the more powerful, thick and rich of the Condrieu releases, the flagship 2013 Condrieu Coteaux du Vernon will compete with the top two to three wines in the vintage. Coming from very old vines planted on a steep, granite slope located just behind the estate, it offers full throttle notes of sautéed peach, marmalade, honeysuckle, liquid rock and citrus oil. Big, rich, textured and nicely concentrated, it nevertheless stays fresh, lively and weightless on the palate, with notable purity and a clean, dry finish. It doesn't come cheap (nor should it), but it's a tour de force in Condrieu that will drink nicely for a decade or more... although I always like to preface that with the sure bet is to enjoy bottles a year after the vintage and over the following 3-4 years.
