JEB DUNNUCK

Domaine Galevan – Chateauneuf Du Pape 2018

Par Jeb Dunnuck, le 07/10/2020

Not yet bottled, and based on 90% Grenache and10% Mourvèdre, the 2018 Châteauneuf du Papefrom this great estate is a powerful, young,primordial barrel sample with more depth andconcentration than most in this charmingvintage. Deep ruby/purple, with a big nose of redand black currants, candied violets, pepperygarrigue, and orange blossom, it hits the palatewith full-bodied richness and has a round,expansive texture, silky tannins, and a great finish. It has enough flesh and upfront fruit toshine right out of the gate, yet it’s also going toevolve for 10-15 years in cold cellars.

Domaine Galevan – Chateauneuf Du Pape blanc 2018

Par Jeb Dunnuck, le 07/10/2020

Surprisingly, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du PapeBlanc from this notable estate is still resting in100% new French oak barrels. Based on a blendof mostly Grenache Blanc mixed with 3% each ofBourboulenc, Roussanne, and Clairette, itreveals a medium gold hue as well as a beautifulbouquet of exotic tropical fruits, caramelizedlemons, white flowers, and spice. With medium-bodied richness, beautiful acidity, nicelyintegrated oak, and a clean finish, this terrific cwhite has both richness and freshness andshould easily be an outstanding wine. Drinkbottles over the coming 2-4 years.

Domaine Galevan – Chateauneuf Du Pape Saint Georges 2018

Par Jeb Dunnuck, le 07/10/2020

The 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Saint Georges isbased all on Grenache and comes from a singlelieu-dit. It was destemmed and vinied andaged all in new French oak. Despite the new oak,it displays plenty of classic Southern Rhônecharm and elegance to go with loads of blackraspberry and strawberry fruit, full-bodiednotes of peppery garrigue, spice box, andcandied violets, sweet tannins, and a big, rich,opulent style that keeps you coming back to theglass. With nicely integrated oak and terricbalance, it’s going to benet from 2-3 years ofbottle age and cruise over the following decade.

WINE ADVOCATE – ROBERT PARKER

Domaine Galevan – Châteauneuf Du Pape Saint Georges 2018

Par Joe Czerwinski, septembre 2020

While the sample of the regular bottling seemed oxidized and wasn’t reviewable, Galevan’s 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Saint Georges is a rich, Grenache-based supercuvée aged in new barrels. Loaded with vanilla, cedar and baking spices, it backs up that oaky veneer with plush black cherries and plums. Full-bodied and velvety in texture, it should drink well young, yet have the ability to age up to a decade.

Domaine Galevan – Châteauneuf Du Pape Saint Georges 2016

Splendide robe profonde carminée intense sans le moindre signe d’évolution. Le bouquet complexe invite au recueillement. Les notes de fruits rouges et noirs confiturés sont associées à de délicats effluves de boisé noble (pain grillé, babelutte, cuir frais…) dans un ensemble velouté et élégant. L’entrée de bouche donne le ton d’une cuvée ambitieuse, riche et concentrée. On apprécie son fuité intact et salivant, son équilibre gras/acidité et ses tanins partiellement lissés. Cette cuvée de haute gastronomie assicie densité et élégance. Elle est ponctuée d’un finale vigoureuse et interminable sur des notes délicatement épicées.

Domaine Galevan – Châteauneuf Du Pape rouge 2017

Splendide robe profonde de grande jeunesse, carminée intense. Le bouquet est ouvert et complexe, presque envoûtant. Il offre une corbeille de fruits bien garnie (fruits rouges et noirs confiturés) dans un ensemble suave, pommadé par un boisé noble très parfumé (caramel, boîte à cigare, cuir frais). La bouche tient les promesses du nez. Strucrurée, concentrée et très aromatique, elle offre un gruité particulièrement croquant dans un ensemble d’une grande élégance où l’élevage s’est mis au service du fruit. La finale de cette cuvée ambitieuse, longue et large à la fois, est relevée par de délicates saveurs épicées. Bravo.

Domaine Galevan – “L’Esprit Devin” 2015

Belle présentation pour cette robe cerise profonde au disque fermé à peine évolué. le bouquet mature et parfumé associe les notes de fruits rouges et noirs mûrs à de rafraîchissants effluves épicés (guarrigue, thym…) et de boisé fin (eucalyptus, moka). Un nez qui invite au voyage. Quelle friandise! Les dégustateurs sont sous le charme de cette cuvée suave et voluptueuse au fruité intact et aux tanins lissés. Du volume et du gras, sans lourdeur ni exxès d’alcool toutrefois, sont au rendez-vous d’une cuvée qui a traversé les années avec bonheur. Une patience récompensée. Bravo.

GUIDE DRINK RHONE – JOHN LIVINGSTONE – NOVEMBRE 2020 

Châteauneuf du Pape – Domaine Galevan – red 2019 

(casks) matt-hued dark red colour; the bouquet is broad, leads on oak and varnish, pine, the cellar. There is a sweet bundle of cooked plums, red stone fruits within. The oaking dominates the attack, is central to the wine, so it’s true ID is masked by that. The result is a tight, dry close, the spiced content suppressed by the non-vineyard element of the equation. The oak stands out on its own on the aftertaste, which is cool, not overdone. From 2024-25, and hope the oak backs off. 14.5°. 90% Gren, 10% Mourv. 100% oak raised, used to be part vat, part oak. 2037-39

Châteauneuf du Pape – Domaine Galevan – white 2019 

(casks) gold-yellow robe; the bouquet has a ginger-tangerine take, is far, plump, sunny, carries oak toasting, notes of sherry. It gives a full start. The palate bears a white raisin flavour, is rather sumptuous, persists fully with mixes of degree and oak, toffee on the finish. The mid-palate is rich and tasty, the length solid. This is a real Southern white, with no care for obvious freshness, and much care for a full, seasoned offering suited to sauced dishes à table. It reminds me of a Spanish white, a Viura. The aftertaste is well rounded, smooth. Marks for character. 14°. 2027-28

Châteauneuf du Pape Saint-Georges – Domaine Galevan – red 2019 

(casks) dark, brooding robe; the bouquet leads on its sweet oak, has a cedar-pine aroma from that, with a plush, stewed fruits interior. The charcoal effect hangs over the prune fruit for now. The palate bears tasty, layered content, with an open offer of abundance, a coated, lip smacking flavour full of spice, cinnamon, plums and cloves; it has great lengh. It’s a Christmas box of tricks. There is a happy richness from the old Grenache here; whether it then needs or deserves the oaking is quite another matter. Allow until 2024 for some oak infusion – otherwise that is intrusive. 14.5°. 100% Gren, 100% new oak. 2043-45

Côtes du Rhône Libre Expression – white 2019 

full yellow robe; the bouquet is a rich, ripe affair, has a creamy, caramel-flan take, with toasting, buttery airs. The palate engages with immediate gras, no hesitation, has a full heart, moves with stately progress, a flavour of white raisin, concentrated quince at its centre, a sort of noble oxidation that will scare the whitecoat wearers. It’s very much geared to la table, sauced dishes especially. There is a grapey, wholesome sign-off. It treads its own path, is nicely out of the loop, marks for character. It will be a rocker with Stilton cheese, a blue cheese, so Roquefort as well, and Vieille France dishes such as ris de veau – sweetbreads. 13.5°. 2023-24

Côtes du Rhône Paroles de Femme – red 2019 

(vat) full, dark red; the nose has a roasted quality, is peppery, has pine varnish, cassis fruit present. The palate is butty, close-knit, leads on Grenache plum fruit with nerve in the tannins, a wild thrust along the second half. This is a Côtes of character, a little unhinged in a good way. There is a note of pine towards the finish. It’s buzzing with life, has brio. 14°. 60% Gren, 20% Mourv, 10% Cins, 10% Cari. From mid-late 2021. 2028-29

Côtes du Rhône Villages L’Esprit Devin – red 2019 

(casks) dark red, full robe; the bouquet has a confident depth, centres on blueberry, cassis fruit airs with a lightly sweet ripeness about them. There’s a rustle of dried herbs in the background. The palate is well measured, bears suave, persistent, rolling content, red fruits with fresh tones into the finish, a vegetal note there. It holds its ground well, and is a thorough, well made Villages, suited to a beef stew, side of venison. The length is solid. 14.5°. From 2022. 2031-33

VINOUS 

Domaine Galevan 2017 – Chateauneuf Du Pape 

Par Josh Raynolds, December 2019

Brilliant crimson. Wild array of red fruit, oral, spice and succulent herb qualities on the expressive, high-toned nose. Sweet and expansive on the palate, o ering intense Chambord, lavender pastille and spicecake qualities and a faint touch of smoked meat. Shows real power and spicy thrust on the youthfully tannic nish, which leaves juicy red fruit and ve-spice powder notes behind.
