Roussanne Vin de Pays Domaine Pierre Gaillard Bottle 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: The main difference between this and Pierre's St Joseph Blanc lies in the age of the vines (these are a little younger) and their location (these are further North, a little nearer to Condrieu, but outside the Appellation boundary of both Condrieu and St Joseph). Otherwise much is similar, including both fermentation and maturation in barrel. <br/><br/><br/><br/>The wine is made with generous amounts of new and second-fill oak, its inherent ripeness and depth of flavour more than enough to match the barrel-influence.<br/><br/><br/><br/>The wine boasts honey, tropical fruit and hints of pear skin, then a palate which impresses with its generosity and layers of refinement. It has a graceful quality: Intense ripe fruit, complemented by honey, peach, apricot and blossom. Dangerously quaffable...<br/><br/><br/><br/>I really love the Roussanne Vin De Pays from Gaillard; it is as generous, ebull
