Domaine Gauby 'La Foun' Côtes de Roussillon Villages, France 2013
Gerard Gauby and son Lionel are strongly committed to the biodynamic viticultural regimen. Inspired by his friend Marcel Deiss in Alsace, he went biodynamic in 2001, which he believes brings more balance & authenticity to his wines. He’s now a winemaking legend, often referred to as 'the uncrowned king of the Roussillon'. His vineyards harbor biodiversity, amongst the vines you'll find wild herbs, olives and almonds. His philosophy includes preserving habitats & biodiversity & to encourage the settling of beneficial insects & birds. In a region known for blends and denser reds, this Carignan will show you elegance and finesse, enjoy with some decanted time or lay it down for a few years.
