Domaine Georges Vernay, Cote-Rotie Maison Rouge 2013, Red - Case of 12
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.
Tasting Note: 100% Syrah. This Côte-Rôtie is a delicate, stylish and structured wine. A dark ruby purple, rather full-bodied, this wine has an astounding perfume of dark fruits, oriental spices and smoke. it expresses assertive tannins and is silky and attractive on the palate. It develops sumptuous liquorice and cigar-box tones. Outstanding aging potential.
