Pierre Gaillard, Saint-Joseph
Producing wines that are harmonious and give wonderful drinking pleasure is what Pierre Gaillard strives for at his family domaine. Established in 1981, Pierre started out with 3 hectares in Saint-Joseph’s Clos de Cuminaille; he now makes wines from 70 hectares, spread across the northern Rhône. He is a true northern Rhône expert, understanding the minutiae and complexities of each parcel of vines he tends, and translating these details into the wines he makes. We were thrilled to introduce the wines of his domaine to our list last year, and once again whole-heartily recommend the following selection.
