2018 DOMAINE GAUBY Calcinaires Blanc 75cl (Roussillon, France)
Style - Rich
Grapes - 35% Chardonnay, 35% Macabeo, 15% Vermentino, 15% Grenache Blanc
Tasting - What on earth would possess someone to grow Chardonnay down in the torrid crucible of the Roussillon? But it totally works on a north facing cool site. Gauby's most brilliant wine perhaps?
FYI: Calcinaires refers to the chalk and limestone soils of the region. Freshness, precision and tension in the wines from these soils is often ascribed to the geology.
