2016 Domaine Remi Niero Condrieu Les Ravines - 92-94 PTS - WA

wa300"This domaine turned out a trio of fine 2016s. The 2016 Condrieu Les Ravines, blended from five different granite lieux-dits, features scents of crushed stone to go along with bold pineapple fruit. It's round and even a bit oily but not overdone, balanced by hints of ginger and white pepper on the finish. - Joe Czerwinski"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Condrieu Les Ravines is more fresh and vibrant, with medium-bodied notes of citrus blossom, spice, and mineral nuances. It doesn’t have the exotic, majestic style of the other two cuvées, but is still a beautiful Condrieu that will keep for 3-5 years."

vinous logo"Pale gold. Heady, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit aromas, along with a sexy floral overtone that gains strength as the wine opens up. Silky, focused and seamless on the palate, offering intense orange, pear, white peach and bitter quinine flavors that show excellent depth as well as energy. The floral note reemerges on the strikingly long, penetrating finish, which leaves behind a sweet peach nectar note. - Josh Raynolds"

vinous logo"Light peach skin. Ripe peach, pear nectar, mango and honey on the deeply perfumed nose. Plush, broad and gently sweet on the palate, offering warm orchard and pit fruit flavors sharpened by a suggestion of candied ginger. Distinctly rich and exotic, in the style of the vintage, delivering strong finishing thrust and a late jolt of bitter orange pith. I'd drink this one on the young side. - Josh Raynolds"
