Gaillard’s Cornas is from a one-hectare plot of 70-year-old vines planted on the cool, east-facing granite slope of Cayret. The vines were previously farmed by Marcel Juge and lie below La Gaynale. Like all Gaillard’s reds, it is destemmed and the Cornas was raised in 50% new oak for 18 months and bottled unfiltered. 

So expressive and very seductive for a Cornas, with a good eye on finesse. Lovely fresh fruit, ingrained spice and smoky minerality taper to a long, perfumed finish. A very smart Cornas that can be enjoyed young.

Reviews

“Deep black-tinted robe; the nose has an acute air of cassis fruit, pings out of the glass, has a blackberry, oak-smoke, coffee beans backdrop. The palate bears running black-fruited content, is smooth and continuous, expressive, flourishes its fruit well. The tannins fit in well, have a supple quality, add their layer of depth. The aftertaste is peppery, gives a clue to the summer with a tone of fleshy content, the juice intact there. From 2024, decant it.”
