Details
This elegant rosé – the first vintage released from this rehabilitated vineyard – is a barrel-aged blend that, in keeping with Cru Classé rules, is made exclusively from grapes grown on the estate.
To allow for cellaring, Château Galoupet Cru Classé Rosé is bottled in glass. However, in contrast to other top-end Provençal rosés, it comes in a lighter-than-average amber glass bottle made from 70% recycled glass and weighing just 499g.

TASTING NOTES:
Where creaminess meets minerality

Appearance

Very pale salmon pink.

Aroma

On the nose it has complex and intense aromas of citrus fruit, white peaches and bitter almonds, which are complemented by a hint of delicate florals.

Taste

Full bodied and layered with a long, mineral finish that evokes the Mediterranean sea breezes that blow through Château Galoupet's vineyards.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Château Galoupet Cru Classé Rosé 2021

Made from a blend of grape varieties – mostly grenache (49%) with syrah (15%), tibouren (15%), rolle (12%), cinsault (7%) and mourvèdre, cabernet, sémillon (2%) – grown over 41 individual plots and gently pressed to protect against oxidation, this first vintage is the result of an unusually late and long harvest caused by 2021’s inclement weather.
 

Partially aged in oak, 38% of the wines used to craft the final blend were vinified and aged for four to five months in 600-litre barrels (50% new and 50% one year old).

A powerful regeneration:
The road to sustainability

In July 2019, when managing director Jessica Julmy first set eyes on Château Galoupet – one of just 18 cru classé estates in Provence – she saw a sleeping beauty: a spectacular yet fragile cru classé, which had more woodlands than vines. She seized the opportunity to rehabilitate those vineyards, and the 77 hectares of protected woodlands that adjoin them, with the ambition of rebranding it as the home of eco-friendly fine rosé. One of her first moves was to put the estate into organic conversion – only five other cru classé estates have the same distinction.

Promoting biodiversity:
A tale of biodiversity

In a bid to promote ecological balance across its vineyards and woodlands, Château Galoupet has partnered with environmental organisations to help with regenerating the soils, nurturing the vines, planting cover crops to attract wildlife and reviving the natural biodiversity on the estate. The upper reaches of the estate are dotted with 200 beehives that serve as a research centre for the French Observatory of Apidology (OFA).

A new way to package rosé:
Eco-forward bottles

Studies show that packaging counts for up to 40% of a winery’s carbon footprint – a statistic that led to the estate completely rethinking the way it bottles its wines in order to save energy during the production process and contribute to lower carbon emissions during transportation. Its Cru Classé Rosé is bottled in lightweight 70% recycled amber glass, while Galoupet Nomade comes in an innovative flat recyclable bottle made from 100% recycled prevented ocean plastic (POP).
