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.

A rare bird in the Rhone - 100% Rousanne!

Tasting Note:
Made for the dinner table, Gaillard's wine is always pitched at the weightier end of the spectrum, at 13.5% abv, it holds a striking and very fresh line of acidity. It's perfumed and pure, layered with apricot, candied orange, yellow flowers, blossom sweetness and spice. There's a deliciously mouth-coating texture with ripe fruits and a rich kernel character. Weighted but balanced, with elegance and finesse, this is an excellent release.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Long finish.
