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.
A blend of Grenache and Syrah. Le Coq Volant Rouge is made from parcels in the Gayére Valley, which takes its name from the river that runs through it. It is renowned for the freshness of its marbled clay soils which make it an ideal terroir for fresh and elegant grape varieties. Situated to the south of the village of Cairanne, this terroir is made up of colluvions rich in moisture retaining silt, with few stones but occasional gravel and pebbles. The clay is marbled, with limestone nodules and abundant pseudo-mycelia, forming substrata that enable the vines to survive the summer heat thanks to the plentiful water supply to their roots.
Skin maceration can last up to three weeks. The wine then undergoes short barrel ageing to enhance the aromas.
