Pale yellow-gold. Suave, mineral-accented citrus and pit fruit aromas, along with suggestions of honeysuckle and green tea. Silky and focused on the palate, offering vibrant Meyer lemon and Anjou pear flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes long, smooth and precise, revealing a building mineral note and a touch of gingery spiciness. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 91-91 Josh Raynolds, www.vinousmedia.com (May 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Superb openness to the nose – talcum powder, apricot juice, peach skin. Great definition and punch here, with lovely creamy persistence on the finish and enough acid to give structure to the generous flesh. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Nov 2017)

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.
