Gilles Barge “La Solarie,” 2010, Condrieu, France

15 Oct

026From Condrieu in the Rhône Valley, where they make the world’s finest expression of Viognier, this full-bodied white shows off aromas of elderflower, ripe peach and apricot. The palate is mouth-filling and luscious, with solid acidity and a smooth, persistent finish. Drink aujourd’hui (that’s today) or over the next several years. Enjoy with grilled king salmon. $65
