  • Domain: Georges Vernay
  • Grape variety(ies): Syrah

Made from old vines on one of the best terroirs in the south of the appellation, this great Côte-Rôtie de garde has a magnificent black purple colour. It delivers superb scents of black fruits, oriental spices and smoke. On the palate, the wine offers assertive but silky and very seductive tannins. It develops sumptuous notes of liquorice and cigar box in retro-olfaction. To drink it young, decant for 2 hours and serve at 18°. Guide Vert RVF: 96/100

Domain
The Vernay estate has left its mark on the history of Rhône-Alpes winegrowing, by saving the Condrieu appellation from extinction at the beginning of the last century. Three generations have contributed to building its legend, including the famous Georges of course, and for some years now his daughter Christine, assisted in her task by her partner Paul Amsellem, her brother Luc and now her daughter Emma.Aware of its place and responsibility, the estate continues its work to preserve the fauna and flora. It is now certified as an organic estate. The very uneven vineyard makes mechanisation impossible, so the vines are maintained manually or with a caterpillar.If Georges has largely contributed to making the estate known for its Condrieu wines, Christine has quite simply revolutionised the style of the estate's reds. Not only has the range of Syrahs been positively enlarged, with IGP, Saint-Joseph terroirs and of course Côtes-Rôties, but the level has jumped to the top of the list of references in the region!
