2018 Domaine Garon Condrieu La Vieille Maison

Top notch, the 2018 Condrieu La Vieille Maison has a ripe, sexy profile that carries lots of caramelized citrus, peach, spice, and floral notes. Rich and textured on the palate, yet also lively and fresh, drink it over the coming 3-5 years.

As I wrote last year, the running of Domaine Garon has passed largely to sons Kévin and Fabien Garon, who came on board at the domaine starting in 2003. While quality was reliable in the 2000s, since 2010, everything appears to have been on a steady upward trajectory, with the 2015 being the finest wines I’ve tasted from the estate, and magical wines produced in both 2017 and 2018. Lovers of pure, classical Côte Rôtie need to get on this estate’s bandwagon ASAP!

2018 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie La Sybarine

The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Sybarine is a larger production cuvée and is brought up all in neutral barrels. This saturated purple-hued 2018 offers up textbook notes of sweet red and black fruits, ground pepper, spring flowers, and hints of meatiness. Medium-bodied, silky and seamless on the palate, it's a beautiful, elegant wine that's going to drink nicely right out of the gate and keep for over a decade. It should also be a great value.

2018 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie Lancement

From a higher elevation site just to the south of the Côte Blonde lieu-dit, the 2018 Côte Rôtie Lancement is another magical wine in the making from this estate, which has brought the quality up to a new level over the past couple of vintages. Awesome notes of crème de cassis, blackberries, mulberries, exotic spices, spring flowers, and hints of graphite give way to a medium to full-bodied, ethereal, elegant Côte Rôtie that has flawless balance, sweet tannins, and a great, great finish. This site never yields the biggest, richest Côte Rôtie, yet produces wines with elegance, complexity, and nuance. Give this brilliant wine 2-4 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following 15-20 years.

2017 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie Lancement

Up with the top wines of the vintage, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Lancement has classic Lancement complexity with its vibrant black raspberry fruits and notes of spring flowers, bacon fat, sappy herbs, and toasted spices. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with building richness and plenty of tannins, this beauty has some upfront charm (as do most 2017s with their sunny fruit), yet 2-4 years of bottle age will help the tannins integrate and it should keep for 20+ years.

2017 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie Les Triotes

The 2017 Côte Rôtie Les Triotes (100% Syrah aged in 15% new French oak) offers an exotic style, with complex notes of black raspberries, bacon fat, spring flowers, and lavender/herbes de Provence aromas and flavors.

2017 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie Sybarine

The 2017 Côte Rôtie Sybarine also shines for its complexity and elegance. Perfumed notes of Christmas spice, spring flowers, sappy herbs, black raspberries, and cassis notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied Côte Rôtie that has remarkable purity of fruit, ultra-fine tannins, and a balanced, seamless, elegant style on the palate that's already hard to resist.

2017 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie Les Rochins

More powerful and backwards, the 2017 Côte Rôtie Les Rochins offers more black (and some blue) fruits as well as stunning crushed flowers, violets, liquid rock, spice-driven aromas and flavors. Taking time to open up, it's full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, has fine, silky tannins, and a great finish. It's the finest vintage of this cuvée I've tasted, and while it needs 3-4 years of bottle age, it should drink fabulously well for two decades.
