Yves Cuilleron 2012 Petit Cote is a Condrieu full of fragrance. The nose boasts pleasant and tasty aromas typically found in the Viognier: hints of violet, fresh apricot, tropical fruits, and citrus for lovely freshness. The palate is scrumptious and fleshy, leading to a fresh and fragrant finish. Yves Cuilleron's 2012 Petite Cote drinks well now for the fruity character or in five years.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 Condrieu la Petite Cote comes from terraced, southeast facing vineyards located around the town of Chavanay. Pure, clean and classic, with honeyed apricots, white flowers, lavender and tinges of minerality, it is medium-bodied, fresh, and lively, with bright acidity. Enjoy it over the coming couple of years.
