M. Chapoutier 'Invitare' Condrieu 2017

Add to wishlist

''Crisp white grapefruit and tangerine flavors lend an unusually spry character to this full-bodied but pristine Condrieu. Accented by whispers of vanilla and sweet spice, it's an alluring, expansive wine but elegant and restrained, not hulking. The finish is marked by a pleasant bite of tea tannins.'' 93 Points, Anna Lee Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''Floral and apricot aromas are bolstered by hints of cedar, baking spices and honey on the nose of the 2017 Condrieu Invitare. It's full-bodied and rich but fresh and long on the finish. I'd drink it young for the flamboyant, exotic aromas and flavors.'' 93 Points, Wine Advocate Magazine

''The nose runs with exotic fruits, ripe mango, papaya, carries oak toasting, a note of white tobacco. It’s a full, exuberant start. The palate is good-bodied, stands up well, has a mandarin, peach stone flavour and good depth in its richness. It runs with great consistency along the palate, and the length is secure, the aftertaste fresh. It’s one of the better, more accomplished Condrieu's of 2017.'' 4/5 Stars, John Livingstone-Learmonth, drinkrhone.com
