Pierre Gaillard Côte-Rôtie 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Having been involved in the development of La Turque at Maison Guigal, Pierre<br/>Gaillard is more than familiar with the interplay between oak and fine<br/>Côte-Rôtie. This is perfectly demonstrated here with notes of<br/>tapenade, smoky bacon and violets lifted somewhat ethereally by 10% Viognier.<br/>There was no Rose Pourpre made in 2008, so these finest grapes, mainly from the<br/>commune of Les Roziers, have all been added to the blend, lending weight and<br/>authority. Drink 2012-2017.

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.
