The 2012 Condrieu Les Grandes Chaillées offers terrific minerality, white peach, tangerine and hints of buttered citrus in a medium-bodied, pure, clean and classy profile. It’s lively and crisp, and should be consumed over the coming couple of years.

I had a fantastic visit with winemaker Stephan Montez, and this top-notch estate fashions a bevy of brilliant Condrieu and Côte Rôtie. During the visit, I was able to do a vertical of each of his Côte Rôties (the les Grandes Places back to '97) but didn't have time to get those reviews into this report. I'll publish those reviews as a stand alone article at a later date.
