"The 2010 Condrieu is even more perfumed and intense, boasting stunning minerality in addition to copious notes of honeysuckle, lychee nut and mango. Drink this luscious, medium to full-bodied white over the next 3-5 years. One of the truly profound wines of the appellation is Guigals Condrieu La Doriane, which comes from estate vineyards located in some of Condrieus finest terroirs, such as Cote Chatillon, Volnats, Colombier and the Coteaux du Chery. Aged in 100% new oak (although it never shows) and put through malolactic fermentation, these are great Condrieus that age well (I mistakenly pulled a 2001 Condrieu La Doriane out of my cellar thinking it was the 2009, and I was shocked to discover how fresh and lively it was at age ten.). Nevertheless, I still have a strong predilection for drinking them in their exuberant youth, during their first 3-4 years of life."

Rhone Report 93
"A total 'Wow' Condrieu, the 2010 E. Guigal Condrieu is blockbuster stuff that delivers a gorgeously pure perfume of lychee, apricot pit, wet stone like minerality, and citrus that carries perfectly to a medium to full-bodied, rich white that has riveting, yet integrated acidity, superb balance, and a classically dry finish. The focus, delineation, and energy here is truly something, and Condrieu lovers should not miss this wine! Given the acidity and balance, this should easily drink well for 5-7 years although there's no way bottles would make it that long in my cellar."
