    starting to receive the attention it deserves both as a cooler and wetter climate than its neighbors across the river but with a longer ripening season The wines here stand as a gateway between the Northern and Southern Rhône frequently seeing equal blends of the noble grapes Syrah and Grenache Though the Galletys reside here making their exquisite blends with pride determination and focus their minds are frequently traveling to other regions in France where they are closely studying the methodologies and techniques of their contemporaries Alain takes every aspect of the process seriously To grow the quality of grapes he wants he farms his fifteen hectares of vineyards organically as he has done since the early 80 s To best insure freshness he has installed top loading hatch doors over their gravity fed cuves so that the grapes go exactly where they need to immediately following the harvest bypassing the cellar completely to begin their fermentation The wines are then aged in Burgundian barrels as the Galletys believe them to produce wines with greater finesse Today they are planting a vineyard so stony and wild that it will have to be worked by a draft horse Alain Gallety is indeed a man of vision Domaine Gallety is a new acquisition to the KLWM portfolio but one well positioned for stardom with wines of such brightness density and impeccable balance Technical Information Wine Blend Vine Age Soil Type Vineyard Area Côtes du Vivarais Rouge 50 Syrah 50 Grenache 40 years average Clay Limestone 13 8 ha Côtes du Vivarais Rouge La Syrare Syrah 35 years average Clay 8 ha ha hectares one hectare equals roughly two and a half acres VITICULTURE VINIFICATION All grapes harvested by hand Fermentation is natural and wines are vinified in cement cuves Wines are bottled
