Pierre Gaillard Condrieu 2016
This Condrieu is drawn from four parcels grown on the terraced slopes of Côte Bellay, Les Patasses (Malleval), Boissey (Chavanay) and La Caille (Condrieu). Each of these sites have soils of fine, decomposing granite. In 2016, the vines yielded just 30 hl/ha of pungent Viognier fruit and the wine spent seven months in oak, of which 10% was new. One of our favourite aspects of Gaillard’s whites is their ability to combine intense aromatics, ripe, hedonistic textures with bright mineral refreshment. Gaillard’s 2016 Condrieu offers just these qualities.
