THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 97 - Drink Date: 2017 - 2022 - "Stephan commented that he did everything he could to maintain freshness in his 2015 whites, and he’s done a fabulous job with both Condrieu releases. One of the finest Condrieu out there is unquestionably the Vignes de Jacques Vernay, which shouldn’t be confused with Georges Vernay. Coming all from the La Combe lieu-dit and very old vines, the 2015 Condrieu les Vignes de Jacques Vernay dishes up a heavenly bouquet of tangerines, flower blossoms, honeysuckle, buttered peach and ample minerality as well as full-bodied richness, vibrant acidity and purity, and a sensational finish. Give bottles 6-12 months and enjoy over the following 4-5 years. Over the last decade or so, Stephane Ogier has raised the bar in just about every way possible for his estate in Côte Rôtie: purchasing new vineyards, replanting existing sites, working hard to develop an AOC for Seyssuel and building a completely new cellar—all the while continuing to produce a bevy of brilliant wines."
