This Cote Rotie Gallet Blanc by François Villard is a marvel! There is the finesse, balance and precision of Domaine François Villard wines. We love this cuvée Le Gallet Blanc: the delicacy of violet and raspberry, the spices of Syrah as well as this exceptional touch of mouth.

Cote Rotie Le Gallet Blanc by François Villard impresses with its balance and greed. The finesse of the fruit contrasts with the power of the appellation. Certainly a beautiful vintage on this Gallet Blanc. Fans of Côte Rotie will be delighted. As usual François Villard brings us a grand cru from the Rhone Valley.  
Ageing of 18 months in barrels (30% new barrels and 70% barrels 2-4 years old)

Originally a cooker, François Villard interessed in wine when he was 20. He started a training in Sommellerie and the wine became a real passion. In 1989, he passed his diploma with a wine growing option dans planted his first vine ! Today, François Villard is considered as one of the best vintners of the Rhone Valley !François Villard

The domain

Cook first but always fascinated by the wine, François Villard began to acquire his first lands, in spring, 1989, on the municipality of Saint Michel (place said Poncins) in naming Condrieu in Rhone Valley. These first 400 bottles will be for sale in autumn, 1992. Today, Domaine Francois Villard account 30 ha and about twenty vintages. These numerous wines are under various naming such as Condrieu, Saint JosephCôte-Rôtie or still Saint Peray.
Francois Villard works brilliantly the Viognier but also more recently the syrah. Every vintage wine inspires him. Both in plays on words to baptize his vintages and to create it of news. Which explains the multiplication of labels (until 18!), which has enough to make get confused of cellar in the most eclectic of the oenophiles.
Domaine François Villard is managed by a master hand, as a self-taught François Villard likes the concentrated and late harvest, to seek not overmaturity but the perfect maturity. Francois Villard wants to tend more towards organic but the tillage sometimes makes the thing difficult because they are terraces very difficult to till. Domaine Villard has therefore attempted another approach and to do things differently as far as possible, so treatments and weed killers are suppressed except on certain plots that require special effort.
