Domaine de Galuval is nestled between Cairanne and Rasteau in the hinterland of Provence in the Southern Rhône. It has 49 hectares in various parcels covering some of the best terroir around the Mont Ventoux, along with some of the oldest vines in the region of local varietals such as Caladoc. Low intervention and perfect growing conditions combined with careful parcel selection and judicious ageing result in thoroughly modern wines that remain true to the individual character of each vintage. Winemaker Emmanuel Couzi’s style is guided by the richness of the fruit and the diversity of each terroir.
The emblem of the Domaine de Galuval, the Rooster spins around as the weathervane is battered by the wind. The Mistral and the benefit it brings are what help their vineyards to prosper, ventilating the vines, keeping the grapes healthy and chasing away the clouds to allow them to reach perfect maturity.
This wine is born from a quartet of local grape varieties: Grenache blanc, Viognier, Roussanne and Clairette. We played on the identity and complementarity of the grape varieties to create a beautiful balance. Each expresses its varietal notes for a wine all in finesse, very aromatic with subtle floral notes.
The color is golden yellow with green reflections. The nose develops complex aromas on the white flower, honeysuckle and linden.
The palate is elegant and airy, it opens with a beautiful round approach, a fruity palate and sustained freshness. An unexpected delicate signature for the region.
