Gaillard Pierre Cote Rotie les Viallieres 2005

Member Review by Nate:

Their 2003 of the Les Vallieres is one of the best bottles of wine I've ever had. Blackberry and pepper, simply amazing.

Pierre Morey:
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.

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.
