2017 Les Gendrines Côtes du Rhône Domaine Pierre Gaillard
|Sub-district||Côtes du Rhône|
100% Viognier. From St-Joseph vineyards. Fermented in old barrels. Creamy, soft, lactic style with light but definite stone fruit. More perfume than some Condrieus I could mention. Seems to benefit from the heat of the vintage. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 16.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Nov 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.
Ripe and fleshy stone fruit with some tropical hints adding interest and verve on the nose. The palate is soft, ripe and fleshy with a wealth of smooth, ripe, peachy flavors. Lots to like. Drink now. Rating: 91-91 Nick Stock, www.jamessuckling.com(Aug 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.
Just like Christmas, this case is a feast for the senses. Hedonistic bouquets and kaleidoscopic palates all round, the angels of flavour will be dancing on your tongue.
