Domaine Georges Vernay - Côte-Rôtie "Maison Rouge" 2019

Rhone Valley - Côte-Rôtie - Red Wine -

"Maison Rouge" is an iconic location in the southern part of Côte-Rôtie, offering a rare and unique representation of organic Syrah. Domaine George Vernay lives on granite-rich soil and has old vines that are over fifty years old.

This Côte-Rôtie "Maison Rouge" red 2019, launched by Christine has sealed the reputation of the Domaine, as much as Vernon: made from mature Syrah vines on the Maison Rouge vineyard. Made from a single varietal of Syrah, the juices are aged for 24 months in barrels (30% of which are new barrels) to give it absolutely incredible class. 

The 2019 harvest in Côte-Rôtie -and more generally in the Rhone Valley- has been considered out of the ordinary, according to the professionals of the sector. Indeed, the climatic conditions have put the vine to a severe test, punctuated by storms, droughts ... And yet, the quality of the juice was exceptional, with very good volumes and perfect sanitary state of the vines. 

Tasting notes: 

The robe: intense purple red

The nose: black fruits, oriental spices, smoke, licorice, cigar box, chocolate, black pepper

The palate: intense, elegant, silky, structured, perfectly balanced, sensual and full-bodied, supported by an assertive tannic framework, however the perfect mastery of the winemaking gives it an exceptionally greedy and velvety mouth, and a finish worthy of the greatest of the region

The advice of 12Bouteilles : Serve chilled 14°-16°C. A wine which will sublimate a game, a simmered red meat, or a beautiful cheese board.
