Looking at the 2013s, these are more lean and racy across the board, and it will be interesting to see if they flesh out once in bottle. The 2013 Condrieu Les Grandes Chaillées exhibits fresh tangerine, mint and green citrus aromas and flavors, medium-bodied richness and high acidity.

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.

About Maturity and Drink Dates: Most reviews in The Wine Advocate include a period during which the wine should ideally be consumed. We express it as a range of years (Drink Dates) and we use that range to calculate a 'Maturity' for the wine as of the current date. Maturity values are: Young - the early drink date is in the future; Early - first third of the drink date range; Mature - middle third of the range; Late - last third of the range; Old - the late drink date is in the past.
