關於 Jeanne Gaillard

當Jeanne還是孩童時,有一天她被懲罰要到葡萄園工作。這次經驗引發了她對葡萄酒的熱情,後來她於Beaune修讀銷售和葡萄種植,再於法國及外地工作。她分別獲布根地一酒村,和美國加州一所酒莊聘用。2008年當她24歲時,她於 Crozes-Hermitage 買入5公頃土地,和在 Collines Rhodaniennes 買入8公頃土地。

About Jeanne Gaillard

One day when she was a child, Jeanne was punished and as a result, was obliged to go work in the vineyard. This experience triggered a passion for wine. Later on, she would end up studying Sales, as well as Winegrowing in Beaune, and gain work experience in France and abroad. She was first employed by an estate in Burgundy and then by a winery in California. In 2008, when she was 24 years old, she acquired 5 hectares within the Crozes-Hermitage growing area and 8 hectares within the Collines Rhodaniennes production zone.

Malolactic fermentation in barrels.Designed for ageing, this wine was highly extracted, thereby revealing the terroir’s rich qualities and mineral characteristics.

Ageing in new oak and one barrel used once or twice before.Gentle maturing with elegant oak, thereby respecting the wine’s true character.

Tasting Notes:
Old vines vinified by a young girl. Grapes derived from over 30-year old vines, producing fruity and very spicy wines.

The Wine Advocate:

The finest of this trio is the 2009 St.-Joseph La Releve. Its dense ruby/purple colour is followed by a big, sweet kiss of black currants, raspberries, licorice, truffle, pen ink and incense. Enjoy this medium to full-bodied, luscious 2009 over the next decade. Drink 2011-2021
