A powerful and complex Condrieu wine by Delas
Produced in the Condrieu appellation, the La Galopine 2015 from Maison Delas Frères expresses all the know-how of a family business, recognised today as one of the most important references in the Northern Rhône Valley.
The Delas Condrieu La Galopine 2015 results from a blend of 3 rigorously selected plots: Vérin, Saint Cyr sur Rhône and Chavanay.
A monovarietal wine, La Galopine 2015 by Delas perfectly illustrates the peculiarities of the Viognier grape, produced on these great terroirs of the Rhône Valley.
In the glass, the Delas Condrieu La Galopine 2015 shows off a nice straw-yellow colour with green reflections. The olfactory palette is quite expressive, characterised by a great precision and aromatic complexity, with generous notes of apricot, ripe peach, honey and dried fruits. The exuberance of the aromas is confirmed on the palate, where a full-bodied and very pleasant texture couples with a finish full of exotic fruit flavours. A flavourful Condrieu, balancing power and complexity.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Starting out with the two Condrieu releases, the 2015 Condrieu La Galopine is a terrific wine that offers classic, medium-bodied notes of crisp peach, green herbs, cumin and exotic spice in a fresh, balanced package.
