Coteau de Chery is aa serious, ageworthy wine, with an intense, complex nose that starts earthy and musky, before opening out into a riot of exotic fruit. The palate is opulent and concentrated, again supported by a backbone of fine acidity. The finish is harmonious and the length long.
94 Points-Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate “The 2004 Condrieu Coteau du Chery reveals extraordinary notes of orange marmalade, crushed rocks, white flowers, minerals, litchi nuts, apricots, and peaches. From one of the finest vintages for this tiny appellation in nearly two decades, this full-bodied, beautifully precise Condrieu will provide immense pleasure.”
93 Points-The Wine Spectator “Rich but very bright, with a stony spine keeping the apricot, white peach and almond flavors racing along. Lovely encore of fruit on the smoky, apricot-filled finish.”
