Pierre Gaillard Cote Rotie 2018

Pierre Gaillard Cote Rotie 2018

The Gaillard Côte-Rôtie is a blend of 90% Syrah co-fermented with 10% Viognier from the schist soils of Fongeant and Viallière (Ampuis) and a parcel of vines on gneiss at Semons in the south of the appellation. All the fruit was harvested by hand with a strict selection, ensuring only the finest bunches and berries made it into the final blend. Fruit was 100% de-stemmed and vinification involved a five day, pre-fermentation soak, and then regular punch-downs. The wine then spent 18 months in barrique (40% new) and was bottled unfiltered.

It's a seductive, layered, and fleshy Côte Rôtie with pulpy blackberry, dark cherry and dark chocolate notes and a long, super-fine palate. There are some lovely tannins and hints of iodine and other spices but all in all the is a perfectly ripe Côte Rôtie--that although very seductive now, will certainly age beautifully. Those who hold for ten years will have a very special bottle indeed.
