Product description

The 2016 Côte-Rôtie 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. 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. IMPORTER

"Violet perfume, ripe blackberry and vanilla spice. Loads of elegance and poise, and the Viognier gives delicious lift and scent. Intense fruit concentration on the finish." 17.5/20 points, JancisRobinson.com

"Darker in fruit than his Esprit de Blonde, this has fresh blackberry amongst the raspberry fruits. Again, the oaky clove note is quite present, but it works in harmony with the fruit aromatics. Full-bodied, but only just, with very fine but ample tannin, good acidity and a long finish." 94 points, Matt Walls, Decanter
