The vineyards of Côtes de Provence Château de la Galinière are located at the foothills of the Cengle plateau, 300 meters above sea level, in the town of Châteauneuf-le-Rouge - next to Aix-en-Provence.
The soil is poor and shallow, consisting mainly of clay, limestone and bauxite - which gives its characteristic red color.
The wine shows a dark garnet color and a powerful and complex nose of strawberry, violet, black olives and spices. The palate is rich, full and silky. A radiant wine, soft and tasty, to enjoy now.
