The vineyard

The "Domaine du Galet des Papes" lies on the slopes of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, planted of vines since more than one millennium.

Our vineyard extends on 13ha including 12ha for red wine and one for the white one.

The average age of our vineyard is 50 years old. Some plots are even over hundred years old.

The soil is clayey and chalky, spread with big rolled pebbles. On 24 distinct slopes cross grape-varieties, Grenache noir, mourvèdre, syrah, counoise, Vaccarèse, cinsault for red wine, and Grenache blanc, clairette, bourboulenc, for white wine.

Thanks to this diversity will raise a powerful red Chateauneuf-du-Pape, colourful glistening and original, a pale yellow white Châteauneuf-du-Pape, floral bouquet and incomparable freshness.

On our sandy soil we harvest our Côtes du Rhône rouge called until Alice (Roger MAYARD wife) retirement "Cuvée des Sablons" that became since 2000 "Le Petit Galet".
