2006 CLOS ST JEAN CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE ROUGE
"The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits garrigue, pepper, incense, and meaty black cherry notes interwoven with heady levels of glycerin, abundant sex appeal, and a full-bodied, fleshy finish. It should provide superb drinking over the next 10-15 years."
"Inky ruby. Powerful dark berry aromas, with gentle garrigue and anise building with air. Fresh, racy and focused, offering sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors and suave, harmonious tannins. Turns spicier on the finish, with echoing red berry flavors." -90 Points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
2006 GALLETY COTES DU VIVARAIS
"The latest vintage from Alain Gallety (for more about whom, see issue 178), this Grenache-Syrah blend 2006 Cotes du Vivarais is strikingly scented with fresh black raspberry, fennel, and rosemary. Mouth-filling and vivacious- a personality that mitigates its slight alcoholic heat- this ripe, resin-tinged, smoky concentrate clings with sap-like intensity and a rather medicinal amalgam of bitter-sweet dark fruits and herbal elixir. It will be well worth following for at least 3-4 years." -90 points- David Schildknecht- Wine Advocate
"The first time we tasted Domaine Gallety was in the summer of 2007 when the domaine sent a few sample bottles of their 2005 Cotes du Vivarais to Kermit at his home in Bandol. Kermit wrote me in Beaune after tasting the samples with his old pal Francois Peyraud of Domaine Tempier to tell me that the wine had really impressed them. Kermit was particularly struck by the quality of the Syrah, which is able to ripen more evenly and slowly in the slightly cooler climate of the Vivarais (located in the expanse of rolling hills between the appellations of the southern and northern Rhone Valley) and therefore has more in common with northern Rhone Syrah than southern Syrah..."
"While tasting the 2006 Cotes du Vivarais, I distinctly remember a dark, inky purple wine that was as smooth as velvet with all the violets and spice of northern Rhone Syrah combined with the powerfully ripe fruit of southern Rhone Grenache. No hard edge to speak of, cool and composed, impeccable balance. All the vines are close to 50 years old and they have been worked organically since the early 80's, long before this was in fashion. The fruit is fermented in cement tanks and aged in older Burgundian barrels until being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The old wines they uncork during visits to their winery prove that their Cotes de Vivarais...can last and develop for at least 10-15 years." -Importer
"'The Ardeche region is home to the great Syrahs from Cornas, Hermitage, and Saint Joseph. To the south of the Ardeche, the Vaucluse produces the finest Grenache-based wines from appellations like Gigondas and Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Guess where Domaine Gallety is located. Between Ardeche and Vaucluse! At Gallety I was struck by the perfect blend, and by the incredible elegance they achieve with the two grape varietals. It exudes class from start to finish and is drinking beautifully.'" -Importer Kermit Lynch on this producer
"Here is a wine, a grower (and perhaps an appellation) that deserves not to stay below the proverbial radar. Across the Rhone from the Coteaux du Tricastin, Alain Gallety...took the reins here in 1982 at the age of 18..." -Review by David Schildknecht in issue #178 the Wine Advocate
