Producer Note
Georges Vernay is known as the "King of Condrieu" and was responsible for the growth and worldwide recognition of this small appellation during the 1950s. His estate covers 22 hectares of vineyards, six of which are in the Côte Rôtie appellation. The steep and uneven vineyards make mechanical labour impossible. The vines are manually propagated without the use of residual herbicide or insecticide. Georges' daughter, Christine, returned to her roots with Paul Anselem, her Parisian husband, and has looked after the winemaking since 1997, gaining worldwide recognition for her Côte Rôtie wines. Vineyard
The 30 year old vines are treated organically. The vines are trained on Cordon and Guyot simple training systems and are planted at a density of 8000 vines per hectare. The vineyard soils are granite. Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel with a long maceration of two to three weeks. Matured in oak barrels for 18 months of which 25% was new. Tasting Note
