Domaine Pierre Gaillard
Pierre Gaillard's passion for wine-making developed at an early age when he was discovered ploughing in the vineyard with a plough horse when only twelve years old. After studying oenology at Montpelier he went on to work for a large estate in Côte Rôtie where he steeped himself in the 'terroirs' and traditions of this famous vineyard. In 1981 he bought his own vines in St Joseph and revived the 'Clos de Cuminaille', an ancient vineyard dating back to Roman times. Since then he has bought vines in both Côte Rôtie and Condrieu.
A mini-Condrieu in all but name, there's a gently smoky touch of oak mingling with the floral notes of this appealing dry Rhône white and oodles of opulent peachy fruit tempered by a polished touch of oak and honey and focused by a fine, lean streak of refreshing acidity.
