Domaine Gauby

The estate is located in the municipality of Calce in the French region Roussillon, The owner Gérard Gauby is considered an icon of the area and the best winemaker in southern France. The vineyards cover 42 hectares. After turning to biological methods, the final consequence followed in 1999 Biodynamic viticulture, In the meantime, Gérard Gauby is one of the world's most important advocates of this philosophy. His maxim is: "I don't really want to keep anything other than what I put on in the vineyard in the cellar" . The fermentation takes place in large wooden fermentation tanks and concrete tanks. Depending on the condition of the grapes, an intuitive decision is made as to whether the containers are open or closed. Only yeasts from the vineyard are used. The spontaneous fermentation takes place very slowly and thus enables the finest ingredients of the grapes to be extracted. Afterwards the wine stays on the wine for a very long time lees,

The expansion takes place largely in new, large wooden fins, the use of new ones barriques has been greatly reduced. It is made with minimal use of sulfur worked. The long-lived wines have an enormously high proportion of total extract, The flagship of the house are AOC red wines Cotes du Roussillon-Villages, These are "La Muntada" (young Syrah and old Grenache Noir and Mourvèdre vines), "Les Calcinaires" (Grenache Noir, Carignan, Syrah and Mourvèdre) and "Vieilles Vignes Rouge" (from Grenache Noir vines over 50 years old, Carignan Noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre). Most wines are considered Cotes du Roussillon Bottled, for example the "Les Rocailles" in white (Maccabeu, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris) and red (Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre, Carignan Noir).
