"I loved the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Gallimardes Blanc, and while it’s made in a fresher, more elegant style than usual, it has a wonderful bouquet of clean white peach, pineapple, and white flowers. Elegant, medium-bodied, with a salty mineral character on the palate, it’s as easy-drinking as they come. Enjoy bottles over the coming 4-5 years."
"Clear eggshell colour with lilac edges. Appealing, delicate floral aromas with elderflower and may blossom tones. Nicely smooth and rounded mouth-feel with honey, acacia and lavender flavours. Lovely full liquorice finish.
When the domaine was created « Les Galimardes » already existed. This area found to the south of the appellation has always been part of our family. Here we grow 100 year old Grenache, Syrah and several white varieties. Classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape terrain, it’s made up of big round pebbles on the surface that radiate gentle heat in the evening helping to concentrate the grapes. This cuvée is in our own image evoking a modern, vibrant and concentrated style: it promises rich powerful flavours. The white Galimardes has that unique pedigree intrinsic to great wines." - Winery
