Description

After gentle pressing and clear settling, the musts are vinified in barrels, without new wood, between 16°C and 18°C, then aged on the lees and stirred until the desired smoothness is obtained. We are very vigilant about the risks of oxidation on our sensitive grape varieties in order to best preserve the fruitiness and freshness of this wine.

Tasting note

Golden color with silver highlights, its precise nose is fresh with notes of pears and white flowers. On the palate it is an explosion of fruits and flowers, ending with a saline and energetic finish. Bite of breaded sweetbreads, roasted in butter on a slice of toasted bread with dried fruits. Or roasted apricot, with a lightly sweetened almond cream and a creamy, just-whipped cream.

About the producer

Pierre Gaillard continues to produce some of the most stunning wines from his 25ha domaine near Malleval. Handling the Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and Syrah with the same gifted care, he offers a very fine and wide range of wines. We are only importing a limited selection from his superlative collection. When he is not busy in the Northern Rhône, he is helping his daughters, Jeanne in Crozes Hermitage and Elise in Banyuls, whilst even finding time to run a small estate in Faugères.
