1999 Guigal Condrieu La Doriane 2 x 75cl / 13.5%
This lot contains two bottles of 1999 Condrieu La Doriane White Wine produced by winemaker E Guigal at Château d'Ampuis.
'The 1999 Condrieu La Doriane emerges from Guigal's own vineyard, which he crop-thinned twice to lower yields. A stunning Condrieu, it offers intense aromas of peaches, apricots, and bananas, as well as a long, multilayered, rich, full-bodied palate with exquisite purity and intensity.' 94/100 points Robert Parker.
Please note, received wisdom is that Condrieu is an unusual fine wine style generally best-consumed within four to eight years of release, though others enjoy them for their developed ‘secondary’ characteristics which come with additional bottle age.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear.
The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability. We can in no way guarantee that they are still within their plateau of maturity or to the buyer’s taste.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
