2011 Domaine Gauby, Coume Gineste Blanc, Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes

Sold Out

Decomposed marine deposits and fossils, squeezed between the sea, the Pyrenees and the hills of Corbières, make up the every particular landscape of the Gauby Empire in the heart of Roussillon. 60 year old Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris stand as bush vines and are farmed at parsimonious yields of 15 hl/ha, then barrel fermented and matured in 50% new and 50% one-year old barrels. The result is an extraordinary elixir; textured, rich and nutty, but with a shard of pure acidity haunting its core adding freshness to the fascinating mid-palate notes of orange, gingerbread and beeswax.
