2016 l'Octroi Domaine Pierre Gaillard

Grapes Viognier
Colour White
Origin France, Rhône
District Northern Rhone

ABV 14%

The l'Octroi has even more weight and rich floral and peachy fruit, but also more fresh acidity and lemon verbena zip so that it is at once unctuous and juicy and moreish. Just gorgeous. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 L&S (Feb 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.

Limpid gold. Powerful, mineral-accented poached pear, honeydew melon, white peach and violet aromas show excellent focus and vivacity. Displays an impressive blend of depth and energy, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit, honey and candied ginger flavors that are complemented by a subtle chamomile quality. Finishes very long, broad and subtly sweet, leaving vibrant floral and mineral notes behind. Drinking range: 2019 - 2024 Rating: 93-93 Josh Raynolds, (May 2018)

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.
