The Chateau du Galoupet is an old domaine. It was officially mentioned on the first map of France during the reign of Louis XIV (1638-1715). Today is comprises over 160 hectares of which almost half are planted to vines.


Galoupet Rose Bottle Wine has been made in provence for over 2,600 years. Today, the area is mostly know for its Roses, which are often considered the finest in the world.


In 1955 Provence became the only wine region outside of Bordeaux to develop a rating classification for its estates. Chateau du Galoupet was one of only 14 estates to be granted the extremely privileged designation "Cru Classe" (since increased to 18). The rating was based on the estates' history, winemaking and cellar reputation, and overall vineyard quality.


Located by the sea, the Chateau is surrounded by a luxurious Mediterranean flora of palmtrees, citrus trees, eucalyptus and oleanders is set on a foundation of metamorphic rocks and the exposure is such as to enable optimum ripening of grapes. This factor, associated with the excellent choice of grape varieties used, gives softness and fruitiness to the wines. Winemaking, ageing and bottling are carried out in the cellars. 

 

The current vintage (2013) is a blend of 45% Cinsault, 40% Grenache and 5% each Syrah, Mourvedre and Tibournen. The style is savoury and mineral, with lovely balance, avoiding the sweetness that plagues many roses. It is a super example.

Galoupet Label Wine Enthusiast: Soft and lightly fruity, it has flavors of bitter almonds as well as red fruits. This gives the wine a firm character with some tannins and a mineral texture. Wait until late 2014 before drinking.

 

Wine Spectator: A brisk, stony style, with lovely tea, melon rind, savory, talc and wet stone notes. Displays range while remaining high-pitched and graceful. Shows good cut through the finish.

Moutonne Label

 

Moutonne Grand Cru Monopole 2012

 

La Moutonne is a very steep area situated in Vaudesir and Preuses (95% in Vaudesir). It is a monopole of Domaine Long-Depaquit who farm the 2.34 ha and bottle it as their flagship Chablis. With a Southsoutheast exposure, its pronounced central slope (almost 40%) protects this vineyard from north winds. The soil is soft and crumbly with a rather pale colour. Great care is taken to deal with winter freezing in this vineyard, in the most durable way from an ecological aspect. An installation of heated electric wires allows the prevention of spring frost in an innovative and environmentally-friendly manner.

A blend of 95% Vaudésirs and 5% Les Preuses, this is frequently among the best Bichot whites, showing their skill with Chablis fruit. Made with 25% new oak, it's an ambitious, concentrated wine that nods towards the Côte de Beaune in style, combining stone and citrus fruit and attractive vanilla undertones.

95 Points

We have just 11 bottle of this Rare cuvee left and there is no more available from the producer.

 

 

If you wish to try a rare and very special Chablis I suggest you act quickly.
