M. Chapoutier – Invitare 2016 – Condrieu

The nose is juicy, elegant, well-built , slightly powerful and offers complexity. It reveals notes of litchi, rose and small notes of nectarine, juicy mirabelle plum associated with touches of kumquat, exotic fruits as well as a subtle hint of white flowers and very discreet hints of racy minerality. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, elegant and offers a good definition, a beautiful acid frame, volume, roundness as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, lychee and ripe apple combined with touches of juicy mirabelle plum, fleshy apricot, juicy citrus (clementine), racy minerality as well as slight touches of vanilla and juicy pineapple. Good length and good persistence. Very discreet tannic sensation, gourmandise / suavity as well as presence of very discreet hints of honey on the finish.
