Description

Galia - which sounds Italian, looks French, but is actually a proud Spaniard. It is the personal project of French oenologist Jerome Bougnaud, who works for Pingus, among others. The grapes for the Clos Santuy grow in a parcel in Piquera de San Esteban, in a vineyard planted with Tempranillo and the white Albillo grape with rootstock dating back to 1930. The aroma fan presents itself balsamic-spicy and reminiscent of cedar, currant wood, jalapeño and some wet stone. On the palate, this elegant long runner reveals dark berries, with flavours reminiscent of black olives and tea leaves as well as tarragon. Spice and noble wood aromas are densely interwoven. Tip: Decant 2 hours before drinking. A wine where patience is rewarded.

Spain

Spain – Variety and perfection

“Somewhere in la Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember...,” begins Don Quixote's odyssey.

The most famous part is definitely when Don Quixote thinks windmills are his enemy and wants to fight them – until they nearly kill him. It’s possible there was a bit too much of the La Mancha wine at play. Spanish vines fight for their survival in rugged landscapes, battling fierce drought and rough soils. But they fight well.

Regions

Castilla y León

Castile and León: Increasing diversity

Only 30 years ago, the autonomous region of Castile and León was an almost blank spot on the European wine list. This has changed immensely thanks to three grape varieties. The Tempranillo variety yields feisty, strong wines in Ribera del Duero and Toro. And Bierzo, the small wine area in the region's northwest, has experienced an impressive ascent, thanks to the character-laden Mencia variety. Finally, the fresh and fruity Verdelho pressings from Rueda have become the most successful Spanish white wines.

Producers

Bodega El Regajal

The unique El Regajal estate with its modern bodega is located to the south of the province of Madrid, in Aranjuez, and was founded by the García-Pita family in 1998. In addition to the Madrid winery, a project called “Galia” was launched in collaboration with Jérôme Bougnaud.  

Oenologist Jérôme Bougnaud comes from a family of winemakers in the Cognac region of France. He is responsible for winegrowing at El Regajal, where he cultivates the vineyards according to biodynamic principles out of conviction. The joint project “Galia” marks the realisation of a long-held dream. 

Grape varieties

Tempranillo

Iberian Native

The Tempranillo is the emblem of Spain. With its juicy cherry fruit, crisp tannins, and its notes of leather and spices, it gives the Rioja its face. In the Ribera del Duero, it is known as Tinta del país. Here it turns out focused and muscular. As it has inhabited the Iberian Peninsula for centuries, it is known under countless synonyms. Across the border in Portugal, it is called Tinta Roriz, and lends colour and body to port wine. It also plays an important role in the booming wine scene of the Douro Valley. The Tempranillo owes its name to its early maturity – "temprano" in Spanish means "early". Tip: do it like they do in Spain and enjoy it with lamb.
