2015 Domaine Gauby, Vieilles Vignes Rouge, Côtes du Roussillon Villages

Description

Jean-Luc Terrier, owner of Domaine Antugnac, also makes wine in the Mâconnais, so is unsurprisingly a dab-hand with Chardonnay. This domaine is located just south of Limoux in the Languedoc region, well situated at altitudes of up to 500 metres above sea level. The extra elevation is crucial as it lengthens the ripening period of the grapes, thus ensuring more rounded fruit characteristics in the wines. This is a fleshy, fruit-driven white with lots of stone fruit and a hint of melon. The palate moves to more generous white peach and green apple fruit with notes of citrus and a fresh, slightly honeyed finish. Drink now.

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.
