Domaine Georges Vernay

Domaine Georges Vernay

The young Georges Vernay moved to the manor in 1943 in the Rhône Valley. Convinced that the cultivation of grapes, especially Viognier, is the future of the region. He continued his father's project, bought a few plots and gradually uprooted the fruit trees. The winemaker opened the region's first tasting cellar and initially established a solid English clientele. He quickly became the global spokesperson for the Viognier grape variety. This earned him the nickname "Mr. Viognier ”by critic Robert Parker. The Georges Vernay estate grew from one hectare of vines in 1943 to 22 in the mid-2010s. Today it is his daughter Christine Vernay who took over the estate in 1996.

The wines of Condrieu reach today, with an intact richness and strength, an energy and a taste that they did not have ten years ago. The reds show a much smoother and more powdery aging; their textures are delicate and saturated. Always very digestible, they have gained in depth. A colossal job has been done on the reds. The maturation is more calm, which makes the wines tastier, still just as long but more graceful.
