Domaine Gavoty 'Grand Classique' Côtes de Provence Blanc, France 2021
We could not think of a more summer appropriate wine. With the first sip of Gavoty we were completely hooked. Roselyn Gavoty, the eighth generation of Gavoty to helm her family’s domaine since her ancestor Philémon acquired it in 1806. Surrounded by oak and pine forests and bordered by the Issole, Gavoty is a polycultural farm encompassing 110 hectares in total, and the family has worked the land without synthetic chemicals for decades, obtaining organic certification in recent years. There is a mouthwatering salinity to this wine, bursting with notes of nectarine and stone fruit.
Grape: Rolle (Vermentino)
Soil: Triassic limestone soils
Viticulture: Polyculture with no chemical used on the property in decades.
