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 2015 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

The 2015 Clos Santuy is produced with the grapes from an ungrafted, head-pruned 1.12-hectare vineyard in the village of Piquera de San Esteban in the province of Soria, just outside the limits of Ribera del Duero, so it’s sold as Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León. The vineyard is planted at some 968 meters in altitude on shallow sandstone soils and is enclosed by a dry stonewall. Bougnaud has been working and vinifying this plot separately since 2010 and noticed its personality and aging potential, but this 2015 is the first vintage to be released. This is a textbook elegant and fresh Ribera from the cooler part; it’s ripe and powerful but really in balance and includes some 10% of white Albillo grapes that surely add to the silky texture and the fresh sensation on the palate. What a portfolio Galia showed in 2015, and this jewel of the crown filled some 1,073 bottles in September 2017. Bravo!
