Ogier Condrieu La Combe de Malleval 2018
Plump and enticing, with anise, peach and melon flavors woven together, backed by honeysuckle and orange blossom notes. The expressive and fresh finish is very long. Drink now through 2022.
While I wasn't able to taste the Vignes de Jacques Vernay, the 2018 Condrieu La Combe De Malleval showed beautifully, with a classic bouquet of apricot, Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, and white flower aromas and flavors. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, has plenty of richness, yet terrific purity.
The 2018 Condrieu la Combe de Malleval is floral, honeyed and enticing on the nose, then delivers a rich, weighty feel on the medium to full-bodied palate, yet it somehow manages to remain fresh and appealing. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
