Description

Lighter weight and leaner than prior vintages, the 2012 Cotes du Roussillon la Muntada has more tannic grip and structure than the Vieilles Vignes, yet a similar level of concentration and depth. Showing nice tart black cherries, new leather, dusty soil and that classic resinous/distilled herb-character that I always find in this wine, it's medium-bodied, has juicy, yet integrated acidity, good tannin and a solid finish. It's a fair step back from a top vintage here, but this pretty, perfumed and classy wine will drink nicely for over a decade.

About this WINE

Domaine Gauby

Domaine Gauby

The modern era for this excellent Côtes du Rousillon estate dates from 1985 when the energetic Gérard Gauby took over the family estate. Previously the wines were sold in bulk to the local co-operative, but Gérard took the brave decision to go it alone.

The domaine is situated in the village of Calce, in the Vin-de-Pays appellation of Coteaux des Fenouilledes. As the name of the village suggests, the soils in this area are predominantly chalky and are suitable for both red and white wines.

A number of grape varieties are planted at the domaine, the reds include Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan, the whites are made from Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and, unusually for this area, Chenin Blanc.

The wines are elegant and modern with great balance and concentration.
