Domaine Georges Vernay 2003 Les Terrasses de l’Empire Viognier (Condrieu)

  1. $60
Condrieu doesn’t have to be overpowering, as Vernay, a master of Viognier, demonstrates in this wine. Aromas of almonds, flavors of fresh apricots and white peaches, a lively, vibrant acidity blend well into a poised, elegant wine. It seems to last for ever in the mouth.  — R.V.  (2/1/2005)

Domaine Georges Vernay 2002 Blonde de Seigneur Syrah (Côte Rôtie)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $55
Blonde de Seigneur was first produced by Georges Vernay in 2000. It is a wine which shows up elegance rather than power, great black fruit expression with fine tannins. It has some dry tannic structure, but there is plenty of fruit here, perfumed and with layers of smoky wood. A really great wine from a medium vintage.  — R.V.  (2/1/2005)

Domaine Georges Vernay 2001 Maison Rouge Syrah (Côte Rôtie)

  1. $90
An amazingly perfumed wine, which shows great tannins and ripe fruit. It has a fine structure, packed with smoky wood and blackberry flavors. It is still young, but wait for its dark fruit to open out, and for its ripe, intense violets and tarry flavors to balance, and it will be an impressive wine.  — R.V.  (2/1/2005)

Domaine Georges Vernay 2000 Les Terrasses de l’Empire Viognier (Condrieu)

  1. $57
Georges Vernay is certainly the master of Condrieu. He takes Viognier to extremes and then makes drinkable wines. This evocatively named wine is ripe and creamy, flavored with delicious peaches, apricots and nectarines. The new wood gives an underlayer of spice and vanilla. This wine, from the master of Condrieu, may be low in acidity, but it is wonderfully high in…  — R.V.  (6/1/2002)

Domaine Georges Vernay 2002 Coteau de Vernon Viognier (Condrieu)

  1. $92
An exotic, perfumed wine, with aromas of violets and rosewater. To taste, this exoticism goes through to ripe, but elegant fruit. Along with all this, there is a freshness and fruitiness which makes the wine light, fragrant and vibrant.  — R.V.  (2/1/2005)

Domaine Georges Vernay 1999 Maison Rouge Syrah (Côte Rôtie)

  1. $45
Bright purple-colored wine, with huge aromas of new wood and a smooth, ripe, polished palate. Chocolate and fine acidity give flavor and structure to the wine. A very modern style of wine, which seems to have left the taste of Rhône Syrah a long way away.  — R.V.  (6/1/2002)
