Galet du Roi is a private label created for Kysela Pere et Fils from property owned by Les Grands Chais de France.
Galet du Roi Châteauneuf-du-Pape is sourced from various producers in the AOC. The idea is to have a wine made with grapes coming from all the different soils type found in Châteauneuf: limestone soil in the (rocky) western part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape; sand and clay soil covered with large stones on the plateaus; mixed sand, red and grey clay, and limestone in the northern part of the appellation; less stony soil alternating with marl in the east; and shallow sand and clay soil on a well-drained layer of gravel in the south. The large pebbles contribute to the quality of the vines and grapes by storing heat during the day and holding water. Our Galet du Roi Châteauneuf-du-Pape uses grapes coming from all these soil types found throughout the AOC.
