Cuvee des Galets Estezargues, lovely little natural red from the southern Rhone. Les Vignerons d'Estezargues make superb natural wines oozing southern french character and natural freshness. Les Galets Rouge is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, fermented cool with natural yeast and bottled without filtration. Sourced from organic and biodynamic (not exclusively) vineyards, Les Galets Rouge explodes with plump juicy berry fruit, liquorice and spice. A delicious wine from the fantastic team at Les Vignerons d Estezargues, serve with Soupe au Pistou, Charcuterie and cheese. For us at Buon Vino, this is our go to bottle of house red midweek, low in sulphur but rich in flavour, character and freshness, it shows that naturally made real wine doesn't have to be expensive and it goes with everything, simple piece of grilled fish, serves slightly chilled or even a big steak, dead versatile.

Les Vignerons d'Estezargues is a super little Co-Op located near Avignon. Like other Co-Operative wineries, they receive grapes from members and use them to make bulk wines, usually Grenche, Syrah and Mourvedre. Here they work a little differently though, as since 1995 they have been making natural wines, and not just gimmicky, box-ticking natural wines - proper natural wines. Only indigenous grapes are used here, no filtration, no fining and an absolute minimum of sulphites. Whilst not certified, the growers restrict chemical use on the vineyards. Working in this way allows them to produce wines of incredible character but at probably the best price you're likely to find for a wine like this.


4Reviews For Cuvee des Galets Rouge Estezargues 2019

  1. How good is this wine?


    My star rating reflects value for money; that is, among wines in this price range, I'd give it three stars, a good rating. The label says 15% alcohol (not 14% as stated on the website). I'm never a fan of such high alcohol and extraction; this simple, basically good wine would be improved by a less aggressive vinification.

    We love this wine chilled, it’s extremely drinkable on its own but goes really well with casual food - pizza, anti pasta. Taste best outside in the sun! Thoroughly recommend

    This wine reminded me of baking hot summers near the base of Mount Ventoux in the late 1970s. when we discovered the delights of vacqueras, gigondas and beaume de venise. But unlike those, there's also a rawness to add to the full bodied spiciness which is really appealing once you get used to it. This is outstanding value for the price, and i will definitely get some more!

  4. How good is this wine?


    Nice smell, loads of taste, spicy notes, but not harshness or unpleasant aftertaste. A punchy little number, yet quite simple and not pretentious.
