Vines are planted on surprising soils of rolled pebbles stemming from the former bed of the Rhone river.
Grapes are de-stemmed and vinified in cement tanks for optimal maceration, with controlled temperatures. Daily pump overs to extract the colour and the structure of the wine. Traditional ageing on fine lees in cement tanks to avoid sudden temperature changes.
This wine has a beautiful deep and intense colour with purple reflections. The nose first shows notes of spices such as pepper and nutmeg, and then aromas of cherry and blackberry with a touch of liquorice and violet. The mouth is round, with silky tannins and a beautiful harmony. Ends with liqourice notes.
La Galatiere comes from organically farmed domaines and from terroirs around Avignon.
