Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2010

    After taking a sabbatical in 2008, Pierre's Rose Pourpre is back on cracking form in 2009. Producedfrom Côte Rozier on a Côte Brune parcel that is pure schist. Dried fruit and plum compote flavours fill out the core while spicy roasted coffee and toasted oak surface secondarily. A delicious wine that is truly representative of the 2009 vintage.

    100% Syrah. Meaty nose. Complex. Not the most typical Côte Rôtie - sort of halfway to a LaLa – but sincere and well made.

Producer

Pierre Gaillard

Nestled in the hills above the picturesque medieval village of Malleval stands Pierre Gaillard'scontemporary cellar. After years of working for other producers such as Vidal Fleury and then Guigal, Pierre decided to create his own domaine wines in the mid-1980s to almost instant acclaim. A modernist of sorts, he relishes pure, vibrant fruit that he long backed with new oak structure and spice. Recently though, he decided to step slightly away from his renowned style and move towards a more classical approach, still endorsing excellent fruit concentration but with better oak integration. The results are nothing less than sumptuous with wines of wonderful complexity that are often approachable young. This balance has created some of the most ‘user friendly' winesof the region pleasing both the keen novice as well as the most particular connoisseur.

Region

Côte Rôtie

Only a red wine appellation, Côte Rôtie is the most northern of all Rhône appellations and is produced mostly from Syrah, although Viognier may contribute up to 20% of the blend. Its terroir is divided into two categories. Côte Brune's soil is comprised of iron-entrenched granite giving thesoil a rich red-brown colour. As a result, it creates wine of notable power and concentration that usually needs time in the cellar to soften and develop. Heading south down the slope towards Condrieu, one encounters Côte Blonde, an area comprised of decomposed schist and mica that is lighter in colour and tends to produce elegantly styled wine for earlier consumption (most of the area's Viognier is grown here). Many traditional producers of Côte Rôtie feel that their best wines are a blend of the two.
