‘Galateo’ is 100% old vine Grenache Noir fortified on skins – a key procedure that helps extraction of colour, tannin and prevents oxidation. The wine is then aged in 225 litre, older oak casks for a minimum of six months before bottling. It is a dense, deep wine that is a fascinating match with red meat, or alternatively used as a dessert wine for chocolate, dark fruits or cheese.

"Equivalent of the cuvée Schistes but made as a VDN. Gorgeous fruit, real purity, elegant, lovely balance and weight, great acidity to balance 90g/l residual sugar. Just the right balance of alcohol and sugar. From the interior vineyards not those close to the sea." - Matt Stubbs MW, Tim Atkin Langedoc Report

“Coume del Mas ‘Galateo’ Banyuls is youthful, packed with smoky dark fruit and even though it is sweet, it somehow tastes much drier than it is. Underlying power is tempered by elegant restraint, the tannins are compact yet extremely fine, like layer upon layer of tissue paper, and there’s freshness, beautiful balance and persistence.” - Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson
