Tasting notes:A complex yet elegant wine, Coteau de Vernon is one of the finest expressions of the subtlety of the Viognier grape. Depending on the vintage, this unique Condrieu, from the very centre of the Condrieu appellation and the estate, presents aromas of yellow fruits, fresh and candied citrus fruits and exotic fruits, along with notes of spices, tobacco, wood and leathers and a lingering bitter finish. Its balance is always perfect, with plenty of freshness, vegetal and menthol notes, white flowers and a very good acidity. Coteau de Vernon is a fine, tight, self-assured, precise and delicate wine with a restrained exuberance, a quintessential Condrieu.

Domaine Georges Vernay is one of the oldest and most famous estates in Condrieu. Georges highly contributed to the reintroduction of Viognier on the hillsides of the region when in 1960’s the appellation used to cover only 8 hectares. 

Today the domaine is managed by Georges’ daughter Christine and her husband Paul. The vineyard covers 8 hectares in Condrieu, 2.5 hectares in Côte-Rôtie and 1.5 hectares in Saint-Joseph and the rest being located in IGP Collines Rhôdaniennes and Côtes-du-Rhône. Their Condrieu are made from vineyards in the heart of the appellation and all express the purest; most restrained expression of the Viognier grape.

For over 20 years, Christine Vernay has used organic farming methods. Considering herself as the custodian of a land for which she is responsible for caring, she has long been committed to organic farming, long before it was fashionable or urgent to do so. She has now successfully demonstrated that, while it is difficult to work the steeply sloping vineyards using organic farming, it is not impossible.
