Viognier le Pied de Samson Vin de Pays Domaine Georges Vernay Bottle 2009
Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Younger vines from the Caille and Mirebaudy lieux-dits , located at 300 metres above the town of Condrieu, provide the fruit for this elegant wine, now complete with a typically grandiose and literary Vernay name. The wine does not disappoint, capturing the exuberant generosity of the vintage with its peachy imprimatur, broad mouth feel and clean appealing finish. (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
GEORGES VERNAY created the family business with 1.5 hectares of AOC Condrieu " Coteau du Vernon " vineyards. Towards the end of the 40's, GeorgesVernay became one of the most ardent defenders and saviours of the Appellation, then about to disappear.
