Côtes du Vivarais, La Syrare, Alain Gallety (magnum) - 2020

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!

Viticulture

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.

Oenology

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.

Domain

Voici le plus grand domaine secret du vignoble rhodanien français. Et pour cause, car il est pratiquement "le" domaine d'une appellation, les Côtes du Vivarais, à l'extrême nord-ouest de la vallée du Rhône méridional, sur les contreforts argilo-calcaire ardéchois. Et d'un seul tenant, ce qui est rare.

Les Gallety sont des vignerons experts mais discrets. Pourtant, ils auraient de quoi bomber le torse, avec un tel terroir, une telle antériorité dans la culture biologique (plus de 30 ans, un cas rare pour le vignoble français) ; et enfin un tel degré d’expertise dans la vinification de la syrah et du grenache.
