Domaine Georges Vernay Condrieu Les Chaillees De L'Enfer 2013
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
The term “Chaillées” comes from regional dialect meaning ‘rocky’ and is in reference to the dry stone walls that form the terraces of this plot. In times gone by those who traversed the plot would often be heard to say “On est à l’Enfer” - ’We are in hell’, in reference to the intense heat one would be made to endure owing to the plots south facing exposition and thus this is how “Les Chaillées d’Enfer”, ‘The Terraces of Hell’ comes by its name. Opulent, full bodied and aromatic this is a remarkably well balanced wine. Drunk well even in its youth, several years of ageing, however, will allow it to fully reveal its charms.
Domaine Georges Vernay is widely regarded as one of the best producers in Condrieu, and has played a significant role in keeping the style alive and flourishing. Part of these efforts include frowning upon the use of herbicides, and weeding its terraced vineyards by hand – even in the summer – to set an example for other vignerons. The Vernay family has worked tirelessly to promote Viognier grapes. Though formerly better known for its white wines, the winery now boasts superb reds that include Vin de Pays Syrah, Saint Joseph, and Côte-Rôtie. Today, the Vernays farm 7.5ha of vines in Condrieu, placing them in the appellation’s top three growers.
