One of the cru classé estates of Côtes de Provence, Galoupet goes back to the 17th century. This latest vintage is a blend that includes a whole gallery of grapes. The result is a rich wine that benefits from the warmth of the year. It has kept plenty of bright acidity and red-currant flavors, leaving a tight, mineral, crisp aftertaste.
