ProducerNote
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'.
Vintage
2014 was a cool vintage, with a slow growing cycle and maturity, which resulted in a
beautiful freshness.
Vineyard
The name of the wine refers to a small red house situated at the foot of this impressively
steep "lieu dit" or registered plot of 'Maison Rouge'. The vineyards are made up of two
hectares of sandy, granite terraces located in the southern part of the appellation.
Trained according to the Guyot simple method, the vines have an average age of 50
years and they have been planted to a density of 10,000 vines per hectare. Due to the
steep nature of the slopes the vineyards are tended to by hand and the vineyards are
managed without the use of weed killers. Treatments are carried out using organic
products.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed before being placed into oak vats, where they were
fermented for a period of three to four weeks. Maturation took place in oak barrels for
24 months, of which 30% were new.
TastingNote
This Côte Rôtie is characterised by its combination of power with elegance. Pure, deep
red fruits from old vines are supported by spicy aromas. Beautifully structured on the
