Description

Syrah from a north-east facing block by the village of Chavanay.  A late ripening site raising deep, dark fruit and a peppery nose.  2016 sees this at the riper and richer spectrum of the village’s style.  Blue fruits, peppercorn, masterstock, cured and roasted meats, the shame here is the tiny allocation!

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.
