Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

IGP Collines Rhodaniennes, Sainte Agathe, Georges Vernay - 2020

This is the archetypal rare - but beautiful - Northern Côtes du Rhône, with floral accents reminiscent of the nearby Côte-Rôtie: scents of blood orange, pepper and even violets. How can one resist such a wine, with its satiny tannins, its fine, elegant character, both easy to drink and already complex for this type of appellation?

Average age of the vines: 40 years. The vineyard is on terraces facing south and south-east on decomposing granite soil, which is very uneven, making mechanisation impossible. The vines are maintained manually. Treatments are carried out with organic products. 7'000 vines/hectare. 6'000 bottles. Single Guyot and Royat cordon pruning.


Harvested by hand, when fully ripe, in small boxes. Grapes are destemmed and vinified in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. Long vatting period of 2 to 3 weeks. Aged for one year in barrels (no new wood).

Suggestions for accompaniment

Vol-au-vent with mushrooms - Stuffed vegetables, socca cake - Beef flank steak with shallots

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!
