Cotes du Rhone Viognier les Gendrines Pierre Gaillard Bottle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Pierre Gaillard's Viognier here is somewhat unusual in that it falls under the jurisdiction of the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation, it vines located just outside the Condrieu appellation, but treated in such a fashion that there has been more rigour and less yield than in a humble Vin de Pays. Matured in 10% new wood and treated to lees strirring during its <em>elevage;</em> peaches and cream, dried apricots and honeysuckle.....all the usual descriptors are evidenced, voluminously, in deference to a very fine <em>vigneron</em> in a superb vintage. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
