A great Languedoc!

The colour is deep rubyred.
The nose is fine and balanced, with notes of very ripe black fruit, candied orange and hints of rose.
The mouth is silky and round. The tannins are coated. The aromatic persistence is long with a finish of orange zest.

LeDomaineGauby is among the best in Roussillon. Located about 20 km north of Perpignan, the vineyard covers 45 hectares. It benefits from a strong maritime influence and is situated at an altitude of between 150 and 200 metres. The terroir is complex and exceptional, in vertical strata, composed of limestone, marl and schist. This allows the vines to take deep root. In an environmental approach and respect for the vine, the cultivation of the vines is as natural as possible, without the use of chemical and synthetic products. Home-made preparations based on plants, essential oils and compost are used. Some of the vines on the estate are a remarkable 120 years old.

The La Foun cuvée is madefrom 100% old Carignan vines, over 120 years old. The vines are planted on schistose and clay-limestone soils.

The grapes are harvested by hand, in crates. The harvest is sorted on receipt in the cellar, then completely destemmed. The vinification is traditional. The vatting period lasts from 2 to 4 weeks. The alcoholic fermentation starts thanks to the indigenous yeasts naturally present on the grapes. The wine is aged for 30 months in casks and barrels. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration.

The Estate Gauby

Gérard Gauby, the master of Calce, has been pursuing his path to excellence for some thirty years now. This emblematic figure and standard-bearer of the Roussillon revival masters all the complexity of the Roussillon terroirs like no other. With his son and his wife, they deliver vintage after vintage a style of wine that is pure, fresh, digestible and dense at the same time, with an exemplary balance and straightforwardness, whether in red or white. The relentless work of the soil in the vineyard is a major factor in this. The diversity and complexity of Calce's terroirs is reflected in the glass in the most beautiful way. Muntada in red, Roque in white of maceration (orange wine) or Coume Gineste in white; as many great vintages which could (which should already rather!) claim one day to the qualifier of grand cru..

The Estate Hors Champ

Cyril Fahl, largement reconnu comme l'un des viticulteurs français les plus talentueux de sa génération, est célèbre pour ses vins d'une finesse exceptionnelle. Basé à Latour-de-France dans le Roussillon, il excelle dans l'art de maîtriser des cépages tels que le carignan, le grenache et le macabeu, créant ainsi des vins d'une grande élégance et d'une belle complexité.

En 2016, confronté à une pénurie de raisins due aux sécheresses dévastatrices de la région, Cyril Fahl s'associe à Alice Gendron, son bras droit au Clos Rouge Gorge. Ensemble, ils cherchent à s'approvisionner en raisins auprès de producteurs partageant leurs valeurs biologiques, respectant pleinement le terroir et l'écosystème de leurs vignobles. L'objectif est de produire des vins de négoce avec la même rigueur que leurs cuvées habituelles.

En 2018, Fahl et Gendron dévoilent leurs premières bouteilles du millésime 2017. Les blancs, issus du macabeu cultivé dans un sol de schiste, sont élevés en partie en cuves et en barriques. Le rouge, élaboré à partir de syrah ayant mûri en haute altitude, bénéficie d'une extraction douce pour maximiser sa buvabilité et son plaisir. Actuellement, le duo produit également un rosé en pressurage direct, élaboré à partir de muscat à petits grains et de grenache noir.
