Light gold in color with some deeper golden tinges. The nose shows deep aromas that are reminiscent of exotic fruit and crystallized peach. This is a very concentrated wine that produces intense, ripe flavors on the palate. It has a smooth texture enhanced by a hint of oak, which gives it added dimension and distinctive character.
This wine pairs well with asparagus, steamed fish with butter sauce, and citrus cooked chicken. In a similar racy style, the 2013 Condrieu Clos Boucher is vibrant and crystalline, with lychee, tangerine and green citrus all backed by edgy minerality. More concentrated and textured than the La Galopoine, with medium to full-bodied depth and richness, I recommend drinking it over the coming 2-3 years, but it will evolve for longer.
