Free Delivery with Orders over £75

Domaine Jeanne Gaillard Syrah is a bright and clear ruby colour, with purple tints. The gentle nose suggests dark chocolate, strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant and red currant aromas. Soft and flavoursome on the palate, the ripe tannins and acidity provide nice tension against the berry fruit and the finish is long and fruity.

Domaine Jeanne Gaillard is situated at Pont de l’Isère, in the commune of Crozes-Hermitage, and on the Drôme plain on the granite plateau above Saint-Joseph. You can guarantee that Syrah grown here is going to be extremely drinkable, and for this wine grapes from two different areas each contribute their own personality. Grapes grown in the the sandy soils of Marzas, just outside Crozes-Hermitage, give a wine that is fruity and generous, whereas the granite soils around Mallevalle, close to Saint-Joseph, give well structured and deeply flavoured wines. When you blend the two, you end up with a wine as good as this.

This wine benefits from a bit less extraction than those from more illustrious appellations nearby, but it still expresses all of the fresh qualities and fleshy fruitness of the Syrah grape variety. It was matured on its lees in vats for six months for the tannins to become more supple.
