“A blend of 80/20 Marsanne and Roussanne, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Les Launes Blanc shows a more crisp, green citrus, tart lemon, and leafy herb-driven bouquet. It's similarly styled on the palate and has good richness in its fresher, lively profile. It should drink nicely for 2-3 years.”

“The 2017 Condrieu Galopine offers a clean, crisp bouquet of citrus blossom, tart tangerines, and honeyed limes. It's clean, vibrant and fresh, with medium body, and has terrific acidity, all making for a forward, charming, straight-up delicious Condrieu.”

“A blend of 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne, the 2017 Hermitage Domaine Des Tourettes Blanc offers attractive notes of salted apple, citrus blossom, buttered lemon, and exotic spices. It's medium to full-bodied, has good acidity, a pure, elegant style, and beautiful purity and clarity. Drink it any time over the coming decade or so.”

“Slightly deeper and richer, the 2017 Condrieu Clos Boucher offers beautiful notes of tangerine, honeyed limes, citrus, and brioche. It's another fresher, elegant Condrieu that has bright acidity, medium body, and sensational balance. It's as drinkable as they come and one of the gems in the vintage.”

“Always one of the wines of the appellation, the 2016 Saint Joseph Sainte Epine from Delas comes from a terrific terroir just north of Tournon. This is a sunny yet cooler, windy region of pure granite soils, and the wine spent 16 months in new and once-used barrels. Saturated purple-colored, with lots of cassis, crushed violets, and liquid rock aromas and flavors, it's seamless and elegant on the palate, with beautiful finesse in its tannins and rocking purity of fruit. This beauty just glides across the palate, is medium-bodied, impeccably balanced, and a classic Northern Rhône Syrah that will keep for a decade.”
