VIEILLES VIGNES ROUGE 2016 DOM GAUBY
The Gauby estate is located 20 km northwest of Perpignan and covers about 85 hectares, 45 hectares of which are vines up to 120 years old and another 40 hectares of meadows, oak forests and garrigues with an incredible and unique aromatic complexity. Our work consists of respecting the environment, taking nature as an ally and source of inspiration by referring to several cultures, leaving aside chemical and synthetic products and using "home-made" preparations based on plants (more than twenty) and other natural products such as essential oils, compost, etc. This Vieilles Vignes vintage is powerful, well-structured and warm. Superb intensity on the nose, with fresh black fruit and hints of liquorice, scents of garrigue and spices.
On the palate its magnificent tannic structure is spicy, rich and silky with a long finish.
