Domaine Pierre Gaillard

Domaine Pierre Gaillard

Domaine Pierre Gaillard was founded in 1986 with 25 hectares of vineyards and is located in the medieval town of Malleval in the Rhone Valley. The plots were gradually increased and in 2002 the Madeloc manor in Banyuls-sur-Mer was established, and in 2007 the Cottebrune manor in Faugères. Today, Domaine Pierre Gaillard manages a total of 77 hectares, and the vines are located on steep hills that descend to the river. Pierre Gaillard makes great efforts to bring the phenolic and alcoholic ripening of the grapes at the same time. The leaves are thinned to reach maximum sun to the grape bunches, which in turn directly affects the color and structure of the wine. The pursuit of Domaine Pierre Gaillard is a wine with clear and distinct fruity aromas, rich color, and elegant tannins.

Rhone Valley

Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley is a long, narrow strip in the south of France. In practice, this region is divided into two sub-regions, each with its own type and identity - North and South Rhone. The northern part is best known for its legendary and long-lasting red wines, mainly from Syrah grapes: Hermitage, Ivory Coast, St. Joseph and Cornas, as well as the fragrant white Viognier from Condrieu. The south is home to the full Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, as well as the light Rose of Tavel. Chateauneuf-du-Pape can be a blend of up to 13 different varieties, 3 of which are even white. This is the main difference between it and Gigondas, where white varieties in the blend are not allowed. The most famous of these main red varieties are Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault, and the white ones are Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier.

Syrah

Syrah

Syrah/Shiraz - Two names of one and the same grape variety - the winemakers from the Old world use Syrah and the ones from the New world - Shiraz. The grape is a deep red, even the pulp, therefore this variety is not suitable for blanc de noir wine style. Syrah wine has specific floral aromas in its youth and develops notes of herbs and spices such as white and black pepper as it ages. These varietal specifics come out better when blended with a small amount of Viognier - a method gaining popularity more and more around the world. Syrah produces wines capable of ageing and improving over decades, which enhances its plummy and almost oriental spicy flavours.
