Condrieu La Bonnette Rene Rostaing 2016 (750ML)
92 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Associate: "Since the last time I visited the domaine a few years ago, I'm happy to say the whites at Rostaing have improved in clarity and focus. The 2016 Condrieu la Bonnette is medium-bodied, offering attractive floral, apricot and spice aromas. It's not overly rich but is fresh instead, with a clean, refreshing, peppery/gingery finish. It should drink well for a few years." 12/17
93 Points, Josh Reynolds, Vinous: "(raised in stainless steel tanks and made with no malo) Limpid straw-yellow. Assertive, mineral-accented orchard fruit, melon and fennel aromas are sharpened by hints of ginger and lemon zest. Intense pear skin, Meyer lemon and violet pastille flavors show a suave blend of richness and delicacy thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Closes minerally, taut and impressively long, leaving a powerful floral note behind." 02/18
93 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "Pretty, with flashes of verbena and crÃ¨me fraÃ®che aromas giving way to green plum, peach and apricot flavors. The long, lush finish lets the fruit glide through, leaving a light salted butter echo lingering and imparting an elegant hint. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases made." 05/18
92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com: "The 2016 Condrieu La Bonnette is terrific and has a pure, vibrant, classy style. Tangerine, white grapefruit, and floral notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, impeccably balanced, graceful Condrieu that has a clean, racy style that's going to benefit from 6-12 months of bottle age. It's classy stuff." 01/18
