2021 Côtes du Vivarais “Fûts de Chêne”

Gallety
Discount Eligible $22.00
AT CART MAX

If you had to erect a gate between the northern and southern Rhône, signaling your passage from one to the other, you might place it at Domaine Gallety. Here, just south of Montélimar, but on the cooler left bank of the river, Alain and David-Alexandre Gallety craft singular red and white wines that exhibit some of the defining characteristics of both regions. In addition to the cooler climate, a relatively early harvest leads to this mineral white with great acidity. Made of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Roussanne, and aged two years in old barrels, it strikes just the right balance of freshness and luscious volume. This blanc is perfect for porch sipping or alongside light summer fare.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
