Domaine Georges Vernay Le Pied de Samson 2017

$75.00

More complex than it appears, the Pied de Samson takes its name from the giant Samson who, stooping to drink water from the Rhone, left his footprint not far from the estate. It represents the Viognier in its original form with expressions of indulgent fruits and freshness. In blind tastings it is often mistaken for a Condrieu; on the palate it is a pure moment of pleasure!

Winery Profile:
A pioneer in the renewal of the Condrieu appellation, Domaine Georges Vernay has always made wines of unique style, notable for their finesse, elegance and harmony. The property has become a major emblem of Rhone Valley winegrowing, from the time when Georges Vernay saved the Condrieu appellation to the international awards earned by Christine Vernay’s Côte-Rôtie. Three generations have left the mark of the philosophy on the estate, while perpetuating its traditions in the greatest respect for both vines and winegrowers

The Estate is a family estate where successive generations have served the land since 1940. Christine Vernay is the third generation of the family to manage it.
Three generations have served the land and the vines. While each wine is greatly influenced by the terroir and while it could be argued that the finesse, elegance and harmony are undoubtedly the common feature of the wines of the three winemakers, the personality of each is indeed expressed in their wine, their work and their ethos; it is the expression of their sensibility.
