Gauby Header 4

"Within two decades of bottling their own wine, an aversion to overproduction plus a passionate affinity with the local soils have made Domaine Gauby the best estate in the Roussillon." Clive Coates, The Great Wines of France 

 

Domaine Gauby is located 30 km southwest of Perpignan just outside the town of Calce. This area of France, on the border of Spain, is Roussillon.


Gauby Calcinaires Bottle It is a beautiful and rugged part of the world. It is still very unspoiled, wild, rocky and dry. There are a lot of rugged hills with soils composed of limestone, marl and shale - ideal for cultivation of grapes.

 

The Gauby family established their domaine in 1983. There are around 45 hectares of vines scattered in parcels over the hillsides around the village. Gerard Gauby has worked hard to enlarge the

estate from the 5 hectares purchased by his grandfather and today the vines include some 120 year old Carignan as well as very old Mouvedre, Grenache and Syrah.

 

Gerard Gauby is now firmly established as one of the superstars of the south-west. He believes that the superb quality of his wines is determined more by the character and quality of the grapes that are harvested rether than what happens in the chais. "One of our greatest advantages in the complexity of our local soils". The best wines come from schist as the vines must go deep to find nourishment. it also keeps the acidity high.


"I don't like sur-maturite. I'm looking for fresh fruit. Burgundy is my reference. I want the same purity in my wines" say Gerard. These are fine, complex and thought-provoking wines.

 

We have a selection of whites and reds from Domaine Gauby in stock, albeit in small quantities. Prices start at $28.95 for the Calcinaires rouge.

Tasting note: Bright crimson-black colour. Fresh cherry, raspberry, violet and spice on the nose. On the palate the wine shows freshness with fine balance. There are dark and red fruits with a some spice, liquorice and garrigue. Medium weight, quite mineral and without any jammy notes. Subtely complex. Pure and clean. Nicely juicy, supple and very drinkable. I like this a lot for its balance and life. Everything is in the right place.
