Domaine Gallety Cuvée Emma 12pk 2016
You could think the Gallety winery originates from a Hollywood movie, with its picturesque facades and views overlooking rolling vineyards that date back to the 1930s. Not only has great care been taken on the outside; but also from careful grape selection and hand-harvesting to gravity-fed workflows and gentle handling of the wines during and post fermentation, Domaine Gallety produces wines of great finesse. Alain, and his son David-Alexandre, own the 15ha property that is certified organic and biodynamic, with a terroir that is based on clay and limestone. It is considered the best winery in the Côtes du Vivarais. Read More
David Alexandre and Alain Gallety make a redoubtable team together.They take care of their vineyard with the same rigour as some very renowned wine domains of the Rhône valley. Their vines are exposed on clay-limestone hills and have been in organic agriculture for 20 years, but without any official certification.The domain is the perfect example of the meridional red wine of tomorrow: sharp, with a wise strength and magnified by a very precise touch of wood. One can recommend any of their wines, from the entry level to the best growth.
Cuvée Emma 2016
Refined bouquet with pepper and berries flavours, very typical of a pinot. Very wide in the mouth, velvety and delicate. The finish is coating, tannic, with a beautiful bitterness. A pretty and refined wine.
