Yves Gangloff is an unlikely winemaker who settled in the Rhône region only because he fell in love with Mathilde, a local woman who's now his wife. The couple sold their grapes to E. Guigal before establishing their own vineyard in 1987. Yves Gangloff draws his wine-making experience from the time he spent at the Rhône Domaine Delas. Gangloff was fortunate to acquire a few precious hectares of Condrieu and Côte Rôtie vines in the late 1990s. The Barbarine cuvée comes from younger vines on granite-based soils in the Côte Blonde. The Sereine Noire cuvée (which uniquely includes the local Syrah clone, Serine) is darker and more robust; it is sourced from the Le Mollard (Côte Blonde region) and Côte-Rozier (Côte Brune region) parcels. Visitors to the annual Ampuis Wine Fair are best advised to make a bee-line for the Gangloff stand as early as possible because thereafter it is virtually impossible to gain access to the great man, such is his popularity. A mercurial and somewhat chaotic genius, Gangloff makes uniformly outstanding wines. The intensely fruity Côte-Rôties of Gangloff has won numerous fans, among those many sommeliers, who enjoy matching them with local black truffle dishes. Gangloff labels -usually voluptuous nudes, are painted by Yves' brother.

The tragic and untimely death of Mathilde Gangloff last year has cast a long shadow over the Northern Rhne. It is testament to the esprit de corps of the region, the strength of the man and the high esteem in which the Gangloffs are held that so many growers came out to help Yves with the harvest.
