97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
We finished the tasting with a dessert wine that’s only been made previously in 1999 and 2003. There are only four barrels (all new) of the 2015 Condrieu Luminescence (100% Viognier), a massive, decadent and unctuously-textured elixir that offers a singular bouquet of honey, crème caramel, mulled pear and apricots. Tasting like the pure syrup of Condrieu, it’s a perfect wine to drink with a cheese course or fruit tart over the coming 3-4 years.

(80 grams of residual sugar) Bright yellow. Heady nectarine, pear, honey and floral aromas; a bright mineral flourish adds vivacity. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit and fennel flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows excellent clarity and cut for such a sweet wine and finishes impressively long and smooth; a ginger note adds closing spiciness and bite.
