Marjorie Gallet is an inspirational maker of biodynamic wine; a real woman of the soil. If this conjures up images of rather hefty peasant lady, then sweep them from your mind forthwith, for Madame Gallet is a fine, delicate slip of person. In among her vines though, she is almost a human extension of them, threading fronds through her fingers, stroking leaves and putting trunks as she speaks. We have truly never seen anyone who seemed quite so at home in a vineyard!
This shows the velvet black cherry and rustic edge typical of this variety but there are also hints of sweet red fruit and cinnamon as well as black pepper from the Grenache and Syrah.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Segna de Cor comes from a selection of the estates youngest vines. 15 to 30 years old a blend of mostly Grenache (50%) with Carignan and Syrah. Winemaking aims at preserving the fruit and the wine’s liveliness hence the choice of ageing the wine in a concrete vat. After 9 months ageing, the wine reveals its crispy fruit and a dynamic, full bodied palate.”
