The total area of the domaine is 11 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the districts of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault. All the vineyards were cultivated following organic agricultural practices from 1992 to 1997, at the end of this period the domaine became 100% biodynamic.
Their 2003 of the Les Vallieres is one of the best bottles of wine I've ever had. Blackberry and pepper, simply amazing.
External Reviews for Gaillard Pierre Cote Rotie les Viallieres
This is the North Berkeley "Cuvee Unique" of which only 3 barrels were made. A veritable heavyweight contender with a rich, concentrated, brutish demeanor right out of the corner. A creature of earthy, meaty and roasted/charred fruit (inky blackberry, plum and currant) consistency accented with a heady peppery floral and roasted plum and vanillin. Teeth-staining and grippy, but with an acidity that uplifts and caresses the palate. A touch of Viognier adds a bit of lilt to the palate and allows for the fruit/floral essences to integrate. Bitter chocolate bark and dark roast coffee linger in the finish with a kaleidoscope of purple/black fruits.
