Domaine Georges Vernay Condrieu Chaillees d'Enfer 

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.

Vinification
Maturation in cask on fine lees

Tasting Note
A wine with a full flavour while retaining the fresh peach fruit and mineral characters typical of a fine Viognier. Very elegant and fine.
