Description

96% Syrah, 4% Viognier, mostly Mollard lieu-dit with fruit from both the Côte Brune and Côte Blonde sides of the hill. A smokin’ release, the more elegant offspring of the hyped 2015. Delivers amazing line, length and persistence, an abundance of savoury black fruits woven with olive tapenade and a firm though not stern mineral spine. Will reward cellaring time of course though ready to go with a good decant. Certainly more classical in style and an exercise in restrained power.

Domaine Gérard / Condrieu/Côte Rôtie

Condrieu And Côte Rôtie From A Young Master

They’ve got the real estate, that’s a given. Slice of La Landonne, La Côte Chatillon, and Font-Jean contribute to the holdings, as well as vineyards much further afield. Add “… a young Vigneron who’s making outstanding wines,” (Jeb Dunnick, The Wine Advocate) in Xavier Gérard, and you’ve got a pretty compelling operation.

2013 was a watershed vintage for this address seeing son Xavier Gérard assuming full control of both growing and winemaking. As with many great family businesses, external experience was encouraged, with Xavier having undertaken vintages in South Africa, USA, Australia and New Zealand; add to this a clear streak of ambition apparent in having purchased his first vineyard at age 20. Expect an amplified presence of Domaine Gérard in coming years.
