Galia

Jerome Bougnaud’s credentials are impressive, having worked for many years at the likes of Quinta Sardonia and Pingus. When he met Peter Sisseck back in 2000, it was only a matter of time before they joined forces. Together they worked through some of the best vintages at Pingus and in 2009 Bougnaud started a project of his own. When he came across a parcel of ungrafted, pre-phylloxera vines, over 100 years old, with an elevation of 980 meters above sea level, Galia was born. Located above the village of Piquera de San Esteban, the gravel-sandy soils over limestone provide one of the most unique terroir of the region.

Galia Clos Santuy 2016 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The nose of the 2016 Clos Santuy was a little more discrete and reticent than the 2016 Villages. This comes from a 1.2-hectare plot of ungrafted vines in the village of Piquera de San Esteban that somehow was left out of the Ribera del Duero appellation. There is a sense of harmony and depth unlike that of the Villages, which felt more open and immediate. The palate is pure rock, austere and chalky, with a sense of minerality that was striking. It's approximately 80% Tempranillo and 20% Albillo fermented together with 20% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in one 225-liter barrel and one 600-liter demi-muid for 22 months. 1,095 bottles were filled in September 2018.

Galia Villages 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

The nose of the 2016 Villages was stunning. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 9% Garnacha and 4% white Albillo from vineyards in Piquera de San Esteban, Fuentelcésped, Hontangas, Cuevas de Provanco, Quintanilla de Onésimo and Trigueros del Valle. It fermented by soil types with indigenous yeasts and some 20% full clusters (the Garnacha was 100% whole clusters) and matured in a mixture of 225-liter barriques, 600-liter demi-muids and 1,200-liter foudres for 21 months. The élevage was very respectful with the wine, which comes through as floral and terribly aromatic, ripe without excess and with a medium to full-bodied palate, pungent flavors and great length and persistence. The tannins are round and velvety, and there is a sense of integration and balance that I liked very much. 16,140 bottles and 230 magnums were filled in July 2018.
