Pierre Gaillard Cote Rotie 2016

Jumping out of the blocks, the 2016 is humming with haunting, lifted aromatics of violet, wild berries and ferrous, bloody mineral-like notes. For now, it’s very sleek and seductive for a young Gaillard Côte-Rôtie, with intense flavours of black raspberry, blood orange and ripe cherry with a good structure of fine, powdery tannins. The 2016 is a blend of 90% Syrah (co-fermented with 10% Viognier) from the schists of Fongeant and Viallière (Ampuis) and a parcel of vines on gneiss at Semons, in the southern sector. All the fruit is harvested by hand and a strict selection is made so that only the ripest bunches and berries make it into the final blend. It is 100% destemmed and the vinification is traditional with 5-7 days pre-fermentation, long maceration and regular punch downs. The wine then spends 18 months in barrique, 40% new. It was bottled unfiltered.
