Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Its light straw-yellow color offers an open nose with notes of acacia, honey, verbena and a hint of white peach. On the palate, this wine has a supple and fruity attack, with a mineral touch. Tangy and crisp finish.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Domain and appellation

  • Pierre Gaillard

    The 25-hectare estate extends from Côte-Rôtie to Cornas. The vines of syrah, viognier and roussanne are planted on shale slopes in Côte-Rôtie and altered granites in Saint-Joseph, Condrieu and Côtes du Rhône.
     
     

    • Terroir: The hillsides of Côte Bellay and Boissey plots are composed of light soils of decomposing granite. Exposed south, they offer an environment where the viognier, grown to obtain low yields, expresses the best of its aromatic potential.
       
    • Vinification: Harvesting is done manually when the grapes are fully mature. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out in barrels. The number of new barrels is limited so that the wood does not dominate the wines. Throughout the duration of the breeding the wines are raised on the lees. The viognier then develops all the complexity of its exotic fruits and flowers aromas: lychee, white peach, violet.
