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
cultivated 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. In 2019, Domaine Georges Vernay was awarded the prestigious 3 stars by
'La Revue du Vin de France'.
Vineyard
Côte Rôtie is a prestigious red wine appellation at the northern tip of the Rhône Valley
wine region, where the vineyards are situated on steep slopes - the Côtes. The three
hectares of vineyard is located in the parish of Semons in the plot 'Coteau de
Bassenon'; and in the parish of Ampuis, in the plots of 'Lancement' and 'Tupin'. The
vineyards are situated on south facing granite terraces. Due to the steep slopes in the
vineyards, the 30 year old vines are maintained manually, without the use of weed
killers and all treatments use organic products. Planted on 3309 rootstocks, the vines
are trained according to Cordon and simple Guyot training systems and are planted
at a density of 8,000 vines per hectare. Yields are 35 hectolitres per hectare. The
vineyard is in conversion to organic status.
Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested at full maturity. They were then destemmed and
fermented at controlled temperatures in vats with a long maceration of two to three
weeks. 100% of the wine was matured in oak barrels for a period of 18 months.
Tasting Note
A touch of Viognier in the blend adds floral nuances to the blackcurrant and spicy
notes of the Syrah. Round and textured with good structure and smooth, silky tannins,
this wine has great finesse and a long, persistent finish.
