The style here is pure Chave.  Xavier borrows from both traditionalist and Burgundian techniques to make wines that emphasize fruit purity, grace and terroir. About half the grapes for Gerard's Côte-Rôtie come from Le Mollard, a top site known for its aromatics and red fruit situated right beside Côte-Blonde, with fruit aadded from La Landonée, Fongeant and Vallière. He uses 5% Viognier, partial whole cluster, and a mix of barrels of varying sizes and ages.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

An assemblage of the estate’s finest parcels, the single Cote-Rotie cuvée produced at the Gerard domaine is sourced principally from the Mollard lieu-dit (65%) with the balance a mix of Font-Jean, Viallière, and La Landonne. The de-stemming regimen varies with vintage, though a significant part is generally left as whole clusters. This is a finer expression of the appellation than many of its counterparts along the slope, with a purity of fruit and finesse to the tannins. Although its profile is marked by a regal elegance that makes this wine seductively drinkable in its youth, older examples offer strong testimony that the Cote-Rotie from Domaine Gerard has the capacity to provide a pure and tenacious expression of this noble terroir for decades in the bottle.
