    2020 Domaine Georges Vernay Condrieu Les Terrasses de L'Empire (Rhone Valley, FR) 9W

    Georges Vernay took over for his father in 1953 and is recognized for "saving" the Condrieu appellation by leading the way towards making this region one of the most recognized in the world. Les Terrasses de l'Empire comes from 35 year old Viognier vines, from several small plots within Condrieu. Ripe nectarine and peach aromas lead into a palate of peaches and cream. The perfect pairing for Thanksgiving dinner or anything in a cream sauce.

    About The Varietal

    Viognier

    Viognier, synonymous with the northern Rhône, is a versatile grape that plays a dual role, not only as a white wine grape but also blended with Syrah in red wines. When crafted as a varietal wine, Viognier produces golden-colored, aromatic white wines characterized by pronounced stone fruit aromas, with apricots and peaches commonly noted. The wines are known for their full-bodied and often textural palate. However, Viognier is susceptible to high alcohol levels and may exhibit low levels of freshening acidity.
