Pierre Gaillard

“Pierre Gaillard makes exciting, delicious wines in all three appellations. His St Joseph, in both white and red, is better than more prestigious ACs from less devoted, less artistic producers. Both cuvées of Côte-Rôtie are excellent, with lush, concentrated fruit and real freshness.” - Jacqueline Friedrich, The Wines of France

"Pierre Gaillard began his career working for both Vidal Fleury and Guigal before he struck out on his own in 1985. Since then, both his reputation and his vineyards have expanded, mainly in the St Joseph, Côte Rotie and Condrieu appellations, but now also Cornas and an estate in the south-west, Domaine de Madeloc, where Banyuls and Collioure are produced... Gaillard is now reckoned in France to be among the Northern Rhone’s best winemakers.

If there was a Guild of Master Northern Rhône Wine Craftsmen, Pierre Gaillard would probably be the president. Be it a St Joseph, a Côte Rôtie or Condrieu, every time you open a bottle with his name on it you know you are going to get a thrilling, bristling expression of the site from where it came. That’s his thing. There is no dead weight in the Gaillard cellar and each wine offers precision and purity of fruit." - Bibendum

    "A blend from several sites totaling about five hectares, Gaillard's 2018 Condrieu offers up green peach and pineapple notes. It's medium to full-bodied, with tart, citrusy notes on the lingering finish. A solid effort, but it's well off the pace of the...

    Chris Kissack 17.5/20 points!"Importantly, it has a good grip to it, a light minerality and some appealing acidity too, and it seems very fresh as a result. I would even go so far as to describe some tension in this wine, which is not something you see...
