Pierre Gaillard, Cornas 2019Regular price $50.00 Save $-50.00
Pierre Gaillard is a relatively new producer in the northern Rhone valley. His wine studies took him to Beaune to study viticulture and took him to Montpellier to study winemaking. Starting with just a quarter hectare of land, and today owns twenty-five hectares. Even with being “newer,” he is already making enormous strides. His parcels are spread throughout the Syrah-producing villages in the north, like Cote Rotie, Condrieu, Crozes Hermitage, Cornas, and St. Joseph, though, also has property in the Banyuls appellation in the southern Rhone. Some of his winemaking techniques veer towards the modern side and his interest in experimenting.
The fruit for this bottle comes from vines over 70 years in age grown in the classic granite soils of the region. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, 50% of which are new.
