With a great cellaring potential, the fruit of this Saint-Joseph is delightfully intense.  More info

This Saint-Joseph has a sustained garnet hue which unfurls a bouquet which is equally rich, concentrated and powerful. As for its palate, it unfurls indulgent notes of red fruit such as strawberry and black fruit like cherry. To do this, Pierre Gaillard has favoured cold pre-fermentation maceration before fermenting in barriques. The wine was then aged 18 months in oak barriques (40% new wood).

Saint-Joseph Clos de Cuminaille Pierre Gaillard serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Gibiers à poil en gigue ou en civet, Canard aux olives, Gratin d'aubergines et tomates au basilic.

Peak: Drink until 2033

    Information about domain Pierre Gaillard

    Pierre Gaillard bought Clos de Cuminaille in Malleval in the early 1980s when he had completed his studies in viticulture and oenology. His passion for wine growing, which was sparked when he was 12, inspired him to establish other vineyards in the South of France, namely Madeloc in Banyuls-sur-Mer in 2002 and Cottebrune in Faugères in 2007. Today he manages 77 hectares of vineyards and always strives to achieve just the right hygiene and temperature conditions to get the best from each harvest, plot and grape variety. His wines are in high demand for their clean and polished character.
