Tasting notes
To the eye, the color is straw yellow with green reflections. the nose, the Condrieu "La Galopine" exhales the perfumes of incomparable power and complexity: violet, apricot, peach, honey, dried fruit. In the mouth it seduces by aromatic exuberance, its smoothness, its rich flavors and massive, and its ultimate exotic fruit.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Dec 2013)
Slightly more mineral-laced, with a straight, clean profile, the 2011 Condrieu Galopine has similar citrus rind, mint, flower oil and pear notes, as well as hints of apricot, to go with a pure, medium-bodied profile on the palate. Spending 12 months all in neutral oak, its a clean, classy Condrieu to drink over the coming 4-5 years or so.

Food pairing
Asparagus, steamed fish with butter sauce, roast chicken with lemon.
