About Pierre Gaillard
Pierre Gaillard is one of the most respected vignerons in the Northern Rhône. If there was a Guild of Master Northern Rhône Wine Craftsmen, Pierre Gaillard would probably be the President. In his early days in Vidal Fleury, he was the first one who discovered the potential of vineyard “La Turque”, which was still the property of Vidal Fleury at that time. He left Vidal Fleury & joined E. Guigal in the 80s, meanwhile he was a key member of Guigal’s winemaking team. Pierre convinced Guigal to purchase the land, planted the vines of La Turque by himself, and established the basis of the renowned Lalala from E. Guigal. The first vintage of Guigal’s La Turque in 1985 obtained a full mark in Wine Advocate rating, which proved his unique insight and remarkable winemaking ability.
