Identity

Château Galoupet is a Cru Classé de Provence, made up of 77 hectares of protected woodland and 69 hectares of vineyard in organic conversion since 2020.
In 2019, Château Galoupet was re-founded by Jessica Julmy with the vision to create elevated wine expressions of the land and terroir, but also the flora and fauna across the estate; a sanctuary for biodiversity; a blueprint for organic viticulture; and a lighthouse for sustainability for Moët Hennessy.
Château Galoupet believes that preserving biodiversity on its estate is integral to the crafting and evolution of Château Galoupet’s outstanding terroir wine portfolio: The estate is working in collaboration with local experts and associations to guide its knowledge and understand the impact of biodiversity on the vineyard and its wines; and is home to one of only 12 queen bee fertilization stations in the world.
In May 2022, Château Galoupet is revealing its two terroir wines in organic conversion: Château Galoupet Cru Classé Rosé 2021 and Galoupet Nomade 2021.

“At Château Galoupet, we want to pay homage to Provence. We are gradually reinstating the dynamics of a rare and delicate ecosystem in a journey that will be sublimated year after year in true terroir wines.”

A unique ecosystem

The nature within the ecosystem between the vines and protected woodland of Château Galoupet plays a vital role in the vineyard.

The surrounding diverse flora and fauna acts as buffer to protect the vines, absorbing the effects of the changing environment, including strong heat and wind. Whilst, the insects deter pests, meaning human intervention and chemicals can be avoided.

Sustainable practices carried out by the team at Château Galoupet including practicing agro forestry and using cover crop help to aid the regeneration of nature.
