Pierre Gaillard Saint-Joseph Rouge 2016

Pierre Gaillard Saint-Joseph Rouge 2016 is drawn from several parcels located in Malleval and Chavanay. The vines are all situated at altitude, in the far north of this sprawling appellation, closer to Vienne and Condrieu than to Tournon-sur-Rhône. The steep, cool soils here have plenty of granite, which contributes to the style of this perfumed and vibrant Syrah. Each parcel is then vinified separately to bring out its own individuality, and to allow more options when assembling the wine. Aged in Allier and Nevers barrels, only 20% new, for 18-20 months, and bottled unfiltered, this delicious 2016 clocks in at only 12.5%. It’s more open and silky, succulent and refreshing than last year’s dense (yet excellent) example. A vivid, perfumed Saint-Joseph striking a fine balance between primary fruits and spicy meaty complexity.
