Vinous Reverie Notes
Domaine Gauby is on the slopes of the rugged Agly valley in southern France. It’s inland from Perpignan, near a hamlet called Calce. This valley does not possess a specific wine appellation. Instead, it relies on the vast Côtes du Roussillon for red wines or the IGP Côtes Catalanes for whites. The prettily named Coteaux de Fenouillèdes was dropped in 2003, for the sake of simplicity.
Calcinaires means limestone land in Catalan. Only indigenous yeasts used for fermentation with a short aging time in steel tank. Variety: Macabeu, Vermentino, Chardonnay, Muscat. Soil Type - Clay and limestone. Farming Type - Biodynamic. Aging: In vats on fine lees. About 8 months. Les Calcinaires delivers a nose of fresh fruits, pineapple, and delicately minty scents of lemon. Fruity and tasty, the palate features notes of pineapple, citrus, with a honeyed notes, freshness and minerality on the finish.
