Food Pairings for Saint-Joseph Blanc Pierre Gaillard
Berry Bros & Rudd review: Pierre Gaillard is best known for his wonderful wines from Côte Rôtie and Condrieu; following fashion, he has now bought a Domaine in the beautiful enclave of Collioure, famed for its port, its cuisine and, for those of a literary persuasion, for being the long term home of the author Patrick OBrian.<br/><br/><br/><br/>We are close to the Pyrenees here, and the Catalan influence is marked; indeed the wines from this far South have assumed their own identity, all the more so as Pierre crafts his white from 80% Grenache Gris and 20% Vermentino, parts of both of which are barrel fermented. The wine is perfumed, honied and rich, but with a distinctive minerality which combines earthy and citric notes; try with goats cheese or white meats.<br/><br/><strong>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)</strong>
