Tasting Notes

Aromas on this wine include wood spice, nutmeg and dark black cherry. Flavors echo the black berries of the nose and combine with black olive, sandalwood and sassafras in this savory wine.

Domaine Gauby's trailblazing commitment to a vigorous biodynamic viticultural regimen has culminated in a unique style of winemaking, demonstrating a near-perfect balance between power and restraint. Made from vines whose age range from 40 to 120+ years old all planted on stony soils of marl and schist, this is a wine of deep character and complexity.

Gerard Gauby and his son, Lionel, emphasize manual, rather than mechanized labor.  Wild plants and trees are allowed to grow in and around the vineyards, while weeds under the vines are plowed using a team of mules. As a result of his commitment to these and other practices, Gerard is widely regarded as the king of biodynamic winemaking in southern France. Gerard's philosophy is rooted in an understanding of wine as a picture of a specific place and vintage. This unflinching individuality has given the wines of Domaine Gauby the pure expression of their terroir. And with his talented son Lionel at his side, the wines have achieved an even higher level of quality.
