Made by Francois Villard, with a degree of whole cluster fermentation, this wine shows the racier, focused and peppery side to Syrah. Bright acids, notable tannin and pure, clean flavors are the norm here. Given the high level of stem usage, this wine will benefit from short term cellaring.

93pts Wine Spectator– 2016 vintage

FOR THE 2016 VINTAGE
Lively and fresh, with racy red currant and savory notes streaming together, along with mouthwatering acidity that gives this good cut. Flashes of bitter plum, violet and white pepper streak through as well. The fruit darkens and fleshes out with air.

Very solid. Best from 2020 through 2035. 2,308 cases made

93pts The Wine Advocate– 2016 vintage

FOR THE 2016 VINTAGE
Villard’s 2016 Cotes Rotie le Gallet Blanc features plummy fruit and roasted meat, swirled together in a medium to full-bodied wine that’s already quite drinkable. Lush and creamy in texture, it picks up some brighter berry notes on the long, layered finish.
