XAVIER GERARD

2016 r 2016 wh A domaine on the march under son Xavier, wine school trained and travelled, whose first complete vintage was 2013. He took over full time from December 2012, as father Francois retired from working two days a week at the Crédit Agricole, having been a part-time vigneron. The regular Condrieu from Marmouzin used to be sold in bulk to Jaboulet, but was launched on its own in 2013, alongside the Condrieu Côte Châtillon, which was a **** STGT wine in 2016, nice and muscular.

From 2013 there has also been a good La Landonne Côte-Rôtie (2013 and 2015), while the Saint-Joseph red from La Blanchard, a vineyard rented from the retired Gérard Villano, wins marks for purity and clarity. The Viognier IGP is always a good performer that lives a little, while there is a good Vin de France Gamay.
