Georges Vernay Condrieu "Challiees de l'Enfer" 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"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." -Winemaker's Notes
