2010 is an incredible vintage in the Northern Rhone, and this is a lovely, balanced wine that displays the best of cool climate Syrah. I love this sort of wine.
Pierre Gaillard St Joseph 2010 Northern Rhone, France
Subtly peppery, fresh and bright with lovely raspberry and cherry fruit. Finely spicy, even with a hint of ginger as well as white pepper. Elegant, supple and midweight, this is a lovely fresh example of Syrah showing enough complexity to keep it interesting and great balance. 92/100 (£124/case en primeur from Bancroft Wines)
