Domaine Yves et Mathilde Gangloff is a well-regarded wine producer based in the northern Rhône region of Condrieu (and best-known for its sumptuous, Viognier-based wines from that appellation). Founder Yves Gangloff established the domaine with his wife, Mathilde, in 1987 after years of selling fruit to negotiants from their small one-hectare (2.5-acre) plot.
As well as its flagship Condrieu whites, the domaine produces a limited selection of labels from prestigious sites across the wider northern Rhone region. These include wines from the Syrah heartland of the Côte Rôtie, as well as Saint-Joseph.
Since the 1997 vintage, Domaine Yves et Mathilde Gangloff has produced La Barbarine from its Côte Rôtie vineyards.
The estate wine labels feature drawings by Yves' brother, Pierre.
