Yves Gangloff is from Alsace, and the estate was created in 1983. He makes an enormously ripe Condrieu, with aromas of apricots and almonds. The fruit is superripe, with hints of noble rot giving a delicious character of honey and peaches. With its oily, condensed texture and a light touch of wood, this is beautifully smooth.
