Presentation of our partner: Domaine Georges Vernay
Under the management of Georges Vernay, the estate has done so much to keep Condrieu on the map, especially in the 1960s when the appellation covered only 8 hectares. To talk about Condrieu and not mention the Domaine Georges Vernay could be like going to Jerusalem without visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in other words, a terrible mistake. Now brilliantly managed by George's daughter Christine and her husband Paul Ansellem, the estate covers 8 hectares in Condrieu, making it one of the three main owners; 2.5 hectares in Côte-Rôtie and 1.5 hectares in the Saint-Joseph appellation. In Condrieu , three cuvées are made from vines located in Condrieu, in the heart of the appellation, facing south to south-east and with steep slopes.
The vintages of the estate
Chaillées de l'Enfer, made from 50 year old vines. Chaillées is the local name for small terraces so steep that working here is particularly hard. It is an early maturing site that always produces a more opulent, richer wine than the previous one; Les Terrasses de l'Empire, made from 40 year old vines, is an excellent introduction to Condrieu.
Côte-Rôtie is represented by two vintages: Maison Rouge, a pure Syrah whose name refers to the small red house located at the foot of this impressive site and made of a rich granite soil and Blonde du Seigneur, a blend of Syrah and Viognier, which combines the richness of flavors and a floral aspect. The range of Vins de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes represented by Le Pied de Samson (Viognier); Les fleurs de Mai and Mirebaudy (Syrah cuvées) are really worth discovering and are an ideal first step in your approach and exploration of this great estate.
