"The 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages L'Esprit de Vin has loads of sweet black cherry fruit and hints of herbs, seaweed, and spice. It is an impressively rich, supple-textured, soft and round Cotes du Rhone to drink over the next 2-3 years." 88 Points - Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
"Coralie is the first woman in nine generations to have taken the reins of the family estate. Coralie's Â« joie de vivre Â» and modern approach has brought new energy to the Domaine Galevan."
She is supported by experience and expertise that have been handed down over the years, as an inheritance. 50 ha vineyards. All the great grape varieties from The Rhone are grown : Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre, Syrah, Cinsault fro the reds, and Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, and Bourboulenc for the whites."
"The vines have an average of 55 years and produce small quantities of very good quality grapes. The soil is treated with great respect ; fertilizer is used parcel by parcel on a sustainable basis. There are no great wines without great grapes. The name Galevan also symbolize a balance between knowledge and creative freedom, the wine's fulness and the lightness of poetry, constancy and defiance. Of robust character, Coralie Goumarre seeks this balance above all else."
"It is that she strives for every day : offering great wines. The names of the wines, the care taken over their labelling, and the emblem placed on each of them stamped with elegance and feminity clearly indicate Coralie's very personal style. This ambition wine maker can be relied upon to deliver quality and Domaine Galevan will doubt seen gracing the best tables." -Importer
