sound yellow robe. Friendly, rounded nose is led by flan, a creamy nut air, vanilla. The palate bears fleshy white fruits, with some richness that just about handles its degree. It ends running rather than at a standstill. Suited to food over the aperitif. Pretty good length, some late glow. 14°. €33. 600 b this year. To 2020 Jan 2015

mild yellow; creamy, cooked apricots air, an undernote of banana and white plum, shows obvious fat. The palate has a rather rich debut, a ball of gras, with spice seasoning. Comes from the plush school of Condrieu, is suited to sauced foods, rich flavours. Its pear-banana flavour lacks subtlety. 14°. 550 b this year. To 2017  Nov 2013
