Here, Gamay is given the royal treatment and the resulting wines will develop and improve beautifully over time in the bottle. The Moulin-à-Vent is a blend of their five top sites: Moulin-à-Vent, 'La Rochelle', 'La Roche', 'Les Thorins' and 'Les Caves'.
Domaine Georges Vernay’s three Condrieu, remain quite unlike any other wine produced in the world. Made from tiny yields on incredibly steep granite terraces, they come from one of the most challenging – and expensive to manage – vineyard areas in the world. At Domaine Georges Vernay, authenticity comes in the form of old vines, low yields and the mantra of ‘minimal intervention’. Christine Vernay’s received the “Wine Person of the Year 2012” award from the two leading French wine critics, Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve. In their new guide, 2012 Le Grand Guide des Vins de France, Vernay was elevated to the top “5 Star” rating. Vernay joins a clique of only 30 French Estates - that includes Domaine de la Romanee Conti, Ausone, Latour, Margaux, Lafite Rothschild and Yquem.
