In Dolio is a collaboration between Pierre Gaillard and the Gallo-Roman museum of Saint Romain en Gal Vienne. It is a typical Chardonnay, very fruity with apricot notes. It shows a round and full mouth, pretty fresh and mineral. The tannins are present, but soft and harmonious.
|Producer||Domaine Pierre Gaillard|
|Keeping||Drink within 5 to 6 years of bottling.|
Handpicked harvest, sorting of healthy and well-ripened grapes. Alcoholic fermentation in barrels with controlled temperatures between 15 and 18°C. Malolactic fermentation in barrels.
This Chardonnay was vinificated in a Georgian technique i.e with whole clusters in Dolia (amphoras). This method leads to the extraction of the skin components, which naturally protect the wine and avoid sulphur addition. 7 to 8 months in fine oak from Allier and Nevers. New oak barrels 10 %. Stirring on lees once a week.
Mainly maintained by Pierre Gaillard, managing 77 hectares, after studying Viticulture and Enology and buying his first vineyard in 1981. The Pierre Gaillard Family own 4 vineyards across Rhone, Roussillon, and across southern France.
