Côtes du Vivarais, La Syrare, Alain Gallety - 2019

This is one of the greatest wines of the Rhone Valley, and has the makings to challenge the best Syrah in the region! From a tiny yield and a very particular clay soil, it offers a sublime nose of blackberry, pepper, musk and cocoa. Velvety but not heavy, the palate is already approachable despite the density, with refined and long tannins. But its ageing potential is immense!

On the top of the slopes, the majority of the clay lends itself to the cultivation of Syrah (pruned in cordon de Royat). Densities vary between 4500 and 5000 vines/ha. The Domaine has been in organic farming since 1979, and is now certified by Qualité-France. The soil is therefore worked mechanically. This cuvée is made from a selection of old vines. Yields of 12 to 15 hl/ha.


The harvest is vatted after partial de-stemming. A light sulphiting at 4g/hl is practiced. Fermentation is carried out using indigenous yeasts, after cold pre-fermentation maceration. Daily pumping over and punching of the cap are carried out during the maceration. The vatting time lasts about 45 days (Syrah). Malolactic fermentation is carried out in vats before the wine is put into barrels. Maturing lasts 2 years. No fining or filtration.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Farmhouse guinea fowl - Quasi veal - Pigeon tajine - Truffle meat pie.

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.
