La relève 2015 - Saint Joseph

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Pierre Gaillard is one on the few Rhône Valley’s star winemakers. As Pierre ages, he is slowly putting his daughter Jeanne in charge of his best plots of vines. This is the meaning of this cuvee "La relève" (succession in French) which was designed and vinified by herself. This wine shows that Jeanne is more than a good choice to take over : this is the perfect mix between Gaillard’s amazing skills and a great vintage. 



As in all the prestigious appellations of the northern Rhône Valley, the vines of Saint Joseph are located on the edge of a plateau along the Rhone River. These are swept by the winds that blow almost permanently in this rocky corridor : it is this characteristic that allows the Syrah, the black grape variety in the area, to express this remarkable freshness.

lecepage Grape variety

Syrah, nicknamed serine in the Rhône Valley, is known to give a good balance between power and subtility. Nowadays, syrah is also the most famous black variety in Australia where it’s known under the name of Shiraz. This grape variety has a spicy character and delicious violet aromas.

lemillesime Vintage

Everyone agrees on the 2015 vintage : it is amazing ! And not only in the Rhone Valley, but everywhere in western Europe. The spring was sweet and vines could blossom gently. Summer was incredibly hot, allowing the grapes to ripen well. Then, towards the end of August, precisely when high temperatures become risky, rains started falling to refresh the vines and rehydrate them. The grapes were almost perfect. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Daughter of the renowned Pierre Gaillard, owner of 4 estates in Rhône Valley and Languedoc-Roussillon, Jeanne Gaillard is now making wine on her own. Mainly located in Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage, she handles the local grape varieties with talent. She aims to highlight the pure expression of each grape variety and each parcel of her estate.
