From the importer:
On Domaine Galouchey's one hectare slice of land, mostly Merlot is planted, but also Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Carmenere. Their vinification style is in their own words "inspired by Burgundy." And that's a bold statement from someone in the center of Bordeaux!
The vineyard was planted in virgin soil and is farmed without herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides. The vines are now around fifteen years old. Harvest is manual and grapes are de-stemmed by hand and macerated in vats.
Domaine de Galouchey has the right to label their wines under the appellation "Bordeaux" but they declassify it vintage after vintage to a "table wine" in order to invite curiosity. Going one step further on this rebellious streak, it is also labeled as a "Vin de Jardin" or "Wine from the Garden." This is in response to the "Vins de Garage" or "garage wines" trend, made popular in Saint-Emilion throughout the 1990s. For Marco and his partners, wine is a beverage that is produced outside, not in a garage. And since their vineyard is less than one hectare in size, it's more of a garden anyway.
Organic. mostly Merlot (75%) followed by almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pet..
