The greatest white wine of maceration (orange wine), rated 20/20 by the RVF!

Orange wine is a wine made like a red wine but with white grapes. A very old technique which is now coming back into fashion and which produces particularly easily digestible wines with a very particular and above all very interesting aroma.

Brilliant colour.
Intense and precise nose with notes of tropical fruit, orange blossom, candied lemon, jasmine and a slight hint of iodine.
On the palate, the wine is fat, powerful, elegant and has a long finish.

Food and wine pairing :

As an aperitif, pan-fried foie gras, squid stuffed with Occitan sauce, grilled scampi, shellfish, pan-fried shellfish, shrimp persillade, white meat in sauce, fish in sauce, a platter of fresh goat's cheese, Roquefort...

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.
