CTES DU RHNE Terre de Galets 2007 DOMAINE RICHAUD CÔTES DU RHÔNE Terre de Galets 2007 DOMAINE RICHAUD

This wine comes from a relatively new winery and the wines are hugely popular in France, selling out almost immediately after release. It has good depth on the nose and palate and show gorgeous dark berry fruit and good length.







VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine were harvested from the Les Garrigues, Paligot and Beauchières Vineyards located in the large plain of the southern Côtes du Rhone, with soil of shingle and red clay. The area borders on Vacqueras and Gigondas in the south, and Cairanne and Rasteau in the north. The vines are between 10-40 years old.

GRAPE VARIETIES
Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Mouvèdre

VINIFICATION
Grapes for Terre de Galets were hand harvested and partially de-stalked and lightly pressed. Some of the parcels were pressed by foot. Fermentation lasted approximately 8 days, using wild yeasts. Temperatures were allowed to reach up to 32°C for a day and a half. SO2 is kept to a minimum.

TASTING NOTE
Deep coloured, with a violet rim, the 2007 Terre de Galets is intensely perfumed, with aromas of blackberries and dark plums, together with liquorice on the nose. Full-bodied, with good structure supporting the ripe, dark fruit and supple tannins.
