The 2018 Jean-Michel Gerin Condrieu "Les Eguets" is an exquisite expression of the Viognier grape, showcasing the distinctive character of the Condrieu appellation. This vintage presents an alluring bouquet, where the intoxicating aromas of ripe apricots, white peaches, and fragrant white flowers are beautifully interlaced with subtle notes of vanilla and spice. On the palate, it offers a luxurious texture, rich yet elegantly balanced, unfolding layers of luscious fruit flavors, including peach, pear, and a hint of citrus. These are complemented by a delicate minerality and a touch of oak, adding complexity and depth. The wine's acidity is finely tuned, providing a crisp counterpoint to its creamy richness, leading to a lingering, harmonious finish.
