Condrieu 'La Combe de Malleval' 2019 - € 63.80
Sensory features: Flamboyant florals entwine among smoky notes on the complex, compelling nose of Ogier's 2019 Condrieu la Combe de Malleval. Backed by ripe apricot and pineapple notes, this medium to full-bodied wine glides easily across the palate—rich and silky—into a long, refreshingly mineral finish. While this is ripe, it's not overdone, and it retains a certain welcome sense of stoniness without being at all austere.
