Product Description

"Gaillard's Saint-Joseph comes from vineyards located in the communes of Chavanay, Malleval and Limony. The soils here have plenty of granite, producing well-structured, vibrant wines. The individual vineyard parcels are kept separate and are mostly destemmed before crushing. Each parcel is then vinified separately "to bring out its own individuality", to quote Gaillard, and to allow more options when assembling the wine. The final wine is then aged in Allier and Nevers barrels, only 20 per cent new, for 18-20 months. Bottled unfiltered, this is a detailed and fragrant 100 per cent Syrah that delivers a wine with deep, spice-tinged, wild berry fruit and a sleek texture. There are just enough integrated, fine tannins and a long, bright finish. A lot of freshness and finesse here. Fans of this cuvée are once again in luck." Importer's Note

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Pierre Gaillard Saint Joseph Rouge 2011
Gaillard's St Joseph blend comes from vineyards located in the communes of Chavanay, Malleval and Limony. The soils here are light, with plenty of granite, producing well-structured, vibrant wines. The individual vineyard parcels are kept separate and are mostly destemmed before crushing. Each parcel is then vinified separately "to bring out its own individuality", to quote Gaillard, and allowing more options when assembling the wine. The final wine is then aged in Allier and Nevers barrels, only 20 per cent new, for 18-20 months. Bottled unfiltered, this is a detailed and fragrant, 100 per cent Syrah that delivers sleek, spice-tinged, wild berry fruit in spades, a gentle tannic structure and a long, bright and flavoursome finish. Fans of this cuvée are well served by this vintage.

"100% Syrah. Mid ruby. Minerally nose and pretty taut and sinewy on the palate. Bone dry and a refreshing tonic though not an ounce of fat."
