Languedoc Rousillon

 Domaine Gauby is on the slopes of the  Agly valley in southern France, inland from Perignan. This valley does not possess a specific wine appellation. Instead, it relies on the  Côtes du Roussillon for red wines or the Côtes Catalanes for whites. Gauby loves old vines that give tiny yields with incredible flavour. The Carignan here is now nearly 150 years old. He farms biodynamically, and uses Grenache Noir 30%, Carignan 40%, Mourvèdre 15%, Syrah 20% in the Muntada (which means mountain in catalan). 20 months maturation; 70% in new oak barrique, 30% in older oak foudres. Now with a bit of bottle age yo'll find cherry, plum, smoke, leather and balsalmic flavours in this fascinating wine.
