Pierre Gaillard

Pierre Gaillard makes fabulous wines. You trek up some of the steepest slopes in Saint-Joseph to find the village of Malleval. This is Pierre’s choice spot as it had largely been abandoned in the 70s/80s due to the difficulty cultivating the steep slopes meaning the land was affordable and available!

Born in Lyon, Pierre studied agriculture which is where he came across, and fell in love with, Oenology. Over many years he has perfected his knowledge and skills in both the vineyard and winery, he minimises his intervention, uses organic fertilisers, no insecticides but won’t be certified. We like this practical, individual approach. This is now a true family affair, all three children – Jeanne, Elize and Pierre-Anton – are now making their own wines, in Rhône and further afield and taking a greater role in the vineyard management. There is no particular ‘house style’ although some high-quality oak is apparent when you first taste, but Pierre makes all the wines to express the individual terroir – handpicking parcel by parcel, vinifying separately – the aim being to demonstrate precision and purity with clear fruity aromas and refined tannin. We are big fans, and the critics are too.
