Côtes du Vivarais, La Ligure, Alain Gallety - 2017

Made from the estate's oldest Grenache vines, with a tiny yield and very long ageing, this extreme rarity has an ethereal nose with notes of crushed strawberry, burlat and mint, which only becomes more complex with air. The palate is full and creamy in the tactile sensations, dense and very long lasting. A monument and an ode to its grape variety!

Viticulture

Average age of the vines: 85 years. The Ligure is a cuvée resulting from a plot selection with a very high Grenache majority. Yields are excessively low (about 8 hl/year), maceration during vinification lasts about a month and a half, then the wine is aged in oak barrels for 36 to 40 months.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Game birds - Hare à la royale - Beef fillet with truffles.

Domain
This is the largest secret estate in the French Rhone vineyards. And for good reason, because it is practically "the" domain of an appellation, the Côtes du Vivarais, in the extreme north-west of the southern Rhône valley, on the clay-limestone foothills of the Ardèche. The Galletys are expert but discreet winegrowers. However, they would have something to be proud of, with such a terroir, such a long history of organic farming (more than 30 years, a rare case for the French vineyard); and finally such a degree of expertise in the vinification of Syrah and Grenache.
