Coq Volant Red

CÔTES DU RHÔNE VILLAGES RED

The emblem of the Domaine de Galuval, the Rooster (from the Latin Gallus), spins around as the weathervane is battered by the wind. The Mistral and the benefit it brings are what help our vineyards to prosper, ventilating the vines, keeping the grapes healthy and chasing away the clouds to allow them to reach perfect maturity. The Coq Volant Red takes its inspiration from this wind and offers a fruity and gossamer like profile as a tribute.

The wine offers the best of the two iconic grape varieties of our region, Syrah and Grenache. We vinified them together to create an osmosis between their two personalities very early in the winemaking process. A wind of change is blowing in the Rhone Valley…one of pure pleasure from the Coq Volant Red.

THE 2019 VINTAGE

The Syrah and Grenache for this blend were characterised in this vintage by their measured maturity levels which gave a fresher, brighter profile than the other wines from this year.

Le Coq Volant Red 2019 is a deep red with purple gleams. The nose offers aromas of violet from the Syrah and red fruit from the Grenache, underpinned by the elegance conferred by oak ageing. In the mouth it is harmonious and fresh, with good length, in notes of black fruit, spices and with silky tannins.

THE TERROIR

Le Coq Volant Red is made from parcels in the Gayère Valley, which takes its name from the river that runs through it. It is renowned for the freshness of its marbled clay soils which make it an ideal terroir for fresh and elegant grape varieties.

Situated to the south of the village of Cairanne, this terroir is made up of colluvions rich in moisture retaining silt, with few stones but occasional gravel and pebbles. The clay is marbled, with limestone nodules and abundant pseudo-mycelia, forming substrata that enable the vines to survive the summer heat thanks to the plentiful water supply to their roots.

HARVESTING & VINIFICATION

The grapes are mechanically picked.

On arrival at the cellar, the bunches pass into a vibrating hopper and are then destemmed. Small 100 hL stainless steel, gravity fed vats enable vinification by parcel and by grape variety. Extractions are thermo-regulated and carefully controlled during fermentation. Gentle and regular immersion by punching down aids the extraction of colour and brings out the silkiness of the tannins. Skin maceration can last up to three weeks.

The wine then undergoes short barrel ageing to enhance the aromas.
