Christine Vernay Viognier, Le Pied de Samson, Rhône
"Vin de Pays Viognier that would give many a true Condrieu a run for their money"
Christine Vernay's 'Le Pied de Samson' bottling is not a Condrieu per se as it hails from the upper plateau, some 300 metres above sea level, which doesn't fall within the boundaries of the official appellation so it is bottled as a relatively humble Vin de Pays. This is no matter though, as this is a banging, sumptuous Viognier that would give many a ‘true’ Condrieu a real run for their money.
