The estate

C Goumarre web 1Coralie is the first woman in nine generations to have taken the reins of the family estate.

Before her Jean-Pierre et Pierrette, her parents, and before them Eloi et Jean-Françoise, her grandparents, left their mark on the estate.

Continuing this long line of Rhône winemakers, Coralie’s joie de vivre and modern, independent approach has bought new energy to the Domaine Galévan. She is supported by experience and expertise that have handed down over the years, as an inheritance.

Fifty-six of the estate’s uniterrupted sixty hectares are planted with vines. All of the great grape varieties of the Rhône are grown : Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan for the reds, Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne and Bourboulenc for the whites. The vines have an average age of fifty-five years and produce small quantities of very good quality grapes.

The soil is treated with great respect ; fertilizer is ised parcel by parcel on organic basis. There are no great wines without great grapes.

Never has the estate borne its name so well. As well as evoking and exceptional soil, the name Galévan also symbolyzes a balance between knowledgeand creative freedom, the wine’s fullness and lightness of poetry, constancy and defiance.

maison siteOf robust character, Coralie Goumarre seeks this balance above all else. It is this that she trives for every day : offering great wines, but not denying any of her principles, following her inspiration, and not letting the possibilities become too restricted.

The name of the wines, the care taken over their labelling, and the emblem placed on each of them stamped with elegance an feminity clearly idicate Coralie’s very personal style. This ambitious winemaker can be relied upon to deliver quality and Domaine galévan will no doubt be seen gracing the best tables.
