IGP Syrah, Fleurs de Mai, Georges Vernay - 2021

This is the story of a locality planted with peach trees of the Mayflower variety, on the Condrieu plateau. In the 1960s, Georges Vernay listened only to his intuition and replaced the fruit trees with Syrah. What followed proved him right! Invariably, this cuvée offers irresistible fleshiness, greed and fruit, with beautiful nuances of blood orange. An absolute delight and a model. Guide Vert RVF: 90/100

Average age of the vines: 50 years. Located on the plateau adjacent to the Condrieu appellation, this parcel was planted with peach trees of the "May Flower" variety, hence the name. 6,000 vines/hectare. 5,000 bottles. Single Guyot pruning.


Harvested by hand, when fully ripe, in small boxes. Destemmed harvest, vinified in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. Long vatting period of 2 to 3 weeks. 8 months in wooden vats instead of 225 litre barrels.

Suggestions for accompaniment

The ideal wine to accompany fine charcuterie, terrines or grilled meats.

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!
