The wine takes its name from the region’s galets roulés, or large quartz river stones, which are a common sight in Châteauneuf’s finest vineyards. Left by the former path of the Rhône River, these stones absorb heat during the day and release it slowly overnight. This wine comes from the estate’s Clos vineyard, which shares similar terroir and exposition as the plot used for the estate's Les Quartz Châteauneuf. A truly unique site within the humble Côtes-du-Rhône appellation, this site is much more special than its classification suggests.

 

Made from a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, this fully de-stemmed 'terrific' (WA) 2020 release was matured in demi-muids, foudre and used barriques to limit the oak impact highlight the purity of the fruit. That is clearly on show with the 'seductive' (WA) nose that exudes 'lots of up-front red and blue fruits' (JD), as well as herbal undertones. The palate is 'silky and voluminous' (WA) and has 'good structure, terrific ripeness, and outstanding length' (JD). With no hard hard edges, this is so enjoyable straight away but will also have the capability to age.
