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