2015 Pierre Gaillard St Joseph Blanc “Smooth and open-knit”- Vinous

90 pts. – Vinous
“Brilliant yellow. Ripe orange, peach and pear nectar on the nose, backed by honey and fennel notes. Smooth and open-knit, showing real depth to the gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors. In a distinctly plush style for the vintage and reminiscent of a 2015 for its weight and rich fruit character. A subtle vanilla note appears on the chewy finish, which hangs on with good, sappy tenacity.”- Josh Reynolds, Vinous
