Description

Just below Capalot on the same hillside, the tiny Galina vineyard has limestone-rich clay soils, and is home to some nearly 100-year-old vines. In 2015 it was aged in 500-litre tonneaux allowing the racy elegance of the vineyard immediate expression, rather than waiting for it to emerge after the wine had digested a lot of new wood. It is smooth, linear, and ripe, with silky fruit, a massive hit of tannins that promise a great future and a long, slightly salty finish.
