  • The wine is delicate yet opulent, with complex stone fruit aromas of peaches, dried apricots and a hint of liquorice. It is elegantly structured with racy acidity and complementing oak flavours through a long, lingering finish. The vines are manually cultivated without the use of residual herbicide or insecticide

The grapes were manually harvested at full maturity 13 to 14 degrees, meticulously sorted and then immediately pressed. A static temperature-controlled must settle took place, and the clear juice was fermented in 225-litre barrels, lasting four to five weeks. The wine was matured in oak barrels, of which 25% were new, on its fine lees for 12 months with regular "bâtonnage" (stirring of the lees), adding texture and complexity to the resulting wine.

The wine is delicate yet opulent, with complex stone fruit aromas of peaches, dried apricots and a hint of liquorice. It is elegantly structured with racy acidity and complementing oak flavours through a long, lingering finish.

Winery

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 Cote Rotie 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 Cote Rotie wines. In 2019, Domaine Georges Vernay was awarded the prestigious 3 stars by 'La Revue du Vin de France'.
