Domaine Georges Vernay Cote-Rotie Blonde Du Seigneur 2016
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
This Côte-Rôtie with its côte blonde aspect, including 10% Viognier, combines a powerful aspect with very floral notes. Each vintage brings out its intrinsic characteristics, resulting in a luscious and stylish wine. A beautiful dark colour, having a smoky, mineral nose with dark fruits, black olive and pepper, again set off by a floral factor. Its aromatic palate, with well-constructed but smooth tannins, continues into a beautifully long finish. An immediate pleasure that slowly, through years, extends to become the pure expression of Côte-Rôtie Syrah./
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.
