Côtes du Rhône Viognier ‘Les Gendrines’ Pierre Gaillard 2016
Pierre Gaillard, Malleval, Saint Joseph
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 small 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.
A vrery impressive and fine white foral, apricot and peach skins, delicate honey on the nose, with opulence as well as a bright freshness, lovely stone fruit fleshness. There is creamy touch to the supple palate, which is also floral and bright with great length, a baby Condrieu.
Grape: 100% Viognier
