Showy and engaging, with mouthfilling yellow apple, green melon, star fruit and peach flavors bouncing through, while light heather and almond notes gently line the finish. Drink now through 2022.

The medium to full-bodied 2017 Condrieu les Terrasses du Palat hints at honey and stone fruit on the nose, then adds a simply seductive texture on the palate. It's a soft, enveloping sensation, plump and silky, yet with great balance, energy and length on the finish. Bravo!
