Pierre Gaillard grew up amongst vines. At 12, he was found ploughing his family vineyard with a horse. Following his winemaking studies in Montpellier, he bought his first lands in St. Joseph in 1981, reviving the “Clos de Cuminaille” – an ancient wine growing estate dating back to Roman times.

In recent years, Pierre’s children have been getting more involved at the domaine; but his own passion and influence still remain at the core of the impressive property. As well as being one of the top growers in St Joseph, Pierre is also one of a handful of producers realising the potential of Seyssuel to the north of the region. In total, he has over 60 parcels spread over 35 hectares in the Northern Rhône, which makes for an extremely comprehensive overview of everything these appellations have to offer.

Tasting Note:
This is an immediately engaging, sleek, detailed and fragrant St-Joseph with an array of red and blue fruits, exotic spices, floral perfume and graphite aromas. The palate flows freely with lovely freshness allied to the silken textural depths and fine-grained tannins. It finishes lovely, long and scented and almost blurs the lines between Pinot and Syrah. 

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
