Having become a star of Côte-Rôtie, Yves Gangloff now offers us a wine from one of its finest terroirs: the Côte Rozier. More info
Devenue une véritable star de la Côte-Rôtie, Yves Gangloff signe un vin issu d'un de ses plus beaux terroirs : la Côte Rozier. Recherchée pour sa profondeur et sa puissance, elle requière quelques années de garde et se mariera à la perfection à des mets de caractère. Evidemment, comme la plupart des vins du domaine, cette cuvée est difficilement accessible, car confidentielle.
Yves Gangloff is a major figure in the Rhône Valley and an artistic winemaker who expresses a unique sensibility through his wines. A rock music fan from the Alsace region, with a somewhat bohemian lifestyle, Yves settled in the area after meeting his future wife Mathilde when he was staying with his brother at the Château d'Ampuis in the 1970s. To make a living he started working as a labourer at Domaine Delas. Here, on the steep terraces of the Côte-Rôtie and Condrieu he got a feel for and learned the basics of viticulture. At the same time, Gaston Andre, a local winegrower offered the couple a plot of vines. And so the Gangloff myth began. In the early days, Mathilde and Yves sold their grapes to the trade but in 1992 they bottled their first vintage. Success came quickly so they expanded their vineyards which have been managed by their children Loup and Elsa since Mathilde's death in 2011.
