DOMAINE GEORGES VERNAY LE PIED DE SAMSON 2017

Wine Region: Rhone

Grape: 100% Viognier

Tasting Notes

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!

Vineyard

Set high on the village's hillsides on a granite soil. These vines at an altitude above 300m were recently removed from the appeallation following the redistribution of the Condrieu AOC area. The soil is worked traditionally and the vines are managed using organic farming techniques.
