Silky and smooth with a touch of chocolate and black olives with firm tannins and a long finish.Great Cote Rotie Wines are characterised by their combination of power and elegance.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 16 hectares of vineyards, 3 of which are in the Cote Rotie appellation.The steep and uneven vineyards make mechanical labour impossible. The vines are manually propagated without the use of residual herbicide or insecticide.George s daughter, Christine, returned to her roots with Paul Anselem, her Parisian husband, and has looked after the winemaking since 1997.Grapes: 100% Syrah Region: France / Rhone / Cote Rotie AOCMaker: Christine VernayNotes: Silky and smooth with a touch of chocolate and black olives with firm tannins and a long finish.Serve: At 16-18c with rich red meat dishes, game and aged cheesesABV: 12.5%
