About the wine
Sourced from 2.3 hectares of vines in Chavanay and Malleval. Soil is decomposed granite. Hand harvested and sorted. Fermentation and malolactic fermentation in barrel. Maturation for 7-8 months in barrel, 5% new.
Unlike many producers who make their Saint Joseph Blanc from a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, Pierre Gaillard's Saint Joseph Blanc is made from 100% Roussanne. Pierre believes that this brings greater complexity and richness to his wines: lots of honeysuckle, white peach, apricot, and minerality all along.
This delicious example of wines that come from this appellation will have what it takes the match a flavourful classic rich dish like a Hearty Tartiflette from Savoie!
