Their vineyard holdings of 2.4 hectares in the Combard, Mollard, and Rozier lieux-dits of Cote Rotie boast steep, cool terroir with a rich composition of granite, gneiss, and mica schist soils. This unique terroir, combined with careful viticultural practices, has enabled them to produce exceptional wines that express the authentic character of their origins.
Their range includes two remarkable Cote Rotie wines: La Barbarine and La Sereine Noire. La Barbarine, a blend of roughly 90% Syrah and the rest Viognier, is a product of both young and older vines, with an aging process of up to 23 months in a combination of used and new French oak barrels. The resultant wine is expressive, elegant, and subtly balanced.
La Sereine Noire, made from 100% old vine Syrah, is a blend of grapes from both the Cote Blonde and Cote Brune. Its vinification involves the removal of 50% to 60% of the stems and an aging period of up to 24 months in new French oak barrels, which makes it a wine of depth, complexity, and distinct character.
Outside the vineyards and cellar, Yves' passion for music adds a distinctive touch to the domaine with his vast guitar collection and jazz, blues, or rock performances. His daughter, Elsa, now manages the administrative side, ensuring a robust future for this esteemed domaine. Mathilde et Yves Gangloff's wines, characterized by their energy, personality, and classic Cote Rotie and Condrieu aromas, are not only treasures for any collector but also captivating experiences for any wine lover.
