96 points "There is only half the normal production of the Condrieu La Doriane (100% barrel-fermented and aged on its lees with routine batonnage) in 2003 because of the vintage’s absurdly low yields. What is in the bottle, however, is spectacular. An exotic, flamboyant white, it boasts marvelous concentration, huge fruit, and a fragrant perfume of smoke, honeysuckle, and confiture of white currants. Drink it over the next 1-3 years."

99 points "Easily one of the greatest Condrieu I’ve ever tasted is the 2015 Condrieu La Doriane. A wine that needs to be tasted to be believed, it possesses a huge nose of toasted brioche, liquid rocks, apricot, flower oil and salty minerality. Unctuous, full-bodied, massively rich, yet also elegant and graceful, with beautiful freshness, enjoy this tour de force over the coming 5-6 years." Best 2017-2023
