Unsurprisingly given its name, Rose Pourpre has a beautiful purple colour that reveals itself with delicate notes of ripe black berries. The palate combines power and refinement. The tannins mellow over time and enable this wine to be paired with simple, tasty dishes like a country terrine. To produce this rich, deep Côte-Rôtie, Pierre Gaillard takes great care of his Syrah grapes, both in the vineyards and in the cellar: his philosophy is for the viticulture to be as natural as possible, with carefully controlled inputs and organic fertilisers. The winemaking process uses a pre-fermentation cold maceration, alcoholic fermentation at 35°C and malolactic fermentation in barrique barrels. The wine is then matured in new oak barrique barrels, and is oxygenated every 4 months.
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.
