Collection: Domaine Gauby

Domaine Gauby's trailblazing commitment to a vigorous biodynamic viticultural regimen has culminated in a unique style of winemaking, demonstrating a near-perfect balance between power and restraint, and that unfailingly expresses the purity of provenance.

Gerard Gauby and his son, Lionel, emphasize manual, rather than mechanized labor. (Wild plants and trees are allowed to grow in and around the vineyards, while weeds under the vines are plowed using a team of mules.)

As a result of his commitment to these and other practices, Gerard is widely regarded as the king of biodynamic winemaking in southern France, and The Wine Advocate's Jeb Dunnuck called Domaine Gauby "one of the top estates in France."

Gerard's philosophy is rooted in an understanding of wine as a picture of a specific place and vintage. This unflinching individuality has given the wines of Domaine Gauby the pure expression of their terroir.

And with his talented son Lionel at his side, the wines have achieved an even higher level of quality.

  • Domaine Gauby Cotes du Roussillon Villages 'La Roque' 2012
    $80.00
    Red wine. Roussillon, France. Biodynamic. "The la Roque cuvée from the Gauby family is produced entirely from eighty year-old grenache vines, with the wine hailing from the same vineyards from which the Muntada bottling is selected. The 2012 la Roque comes in at an even thirteen percent octane and is nicely pale in color (as grenache ought to be), offering up a bright and complex bouquet of raspberries, cherries, a touch of fruitcake, beautiful spice tones (more cloves and cinnamon, rather than garrigue), Provençal soil tones, spiced meats and a gentle topnote of lavender. On the palate the wine is pure, full and impressively transparent, with a good core, a fine impression of stony minerality, ripe, moderately chewy tannins and a long, tangy and still quite primary finish. This is still a young and slightly angular wine that needs more bottle age, but it has lovely sweet red fruit at the core and impressive soil signature and will be excellent when its blossoms." — 92+ Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar #69 (May/June 2017)

  • Domaine Gauby Cotes du Roussillon Muntada 2014
    $80.00
    Red wine. Roussillon, France. Biodynamic. "Lovely floral and garrigue notes emerge on the nose of Gauby's 2014 Cotes du Roussillon la Muntada, a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. It's a delicate, red-fruited wine, with raspberries and cherries mingling with wild herbs and subtle hints of savory spice. It's medium-bodied and silky, already approachable yet capable of drinking well through at least 2022." — 93 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Sept. 2018)

  • Domaine Gauby Vieilles Vignes Rouge 2015
    $40.00

    Red wine. Roussillon, France. Biodynamic. Carignan, Grenache, Mourvedre. Made from vines whose age range from 40 to 120+ years old all planted on stony soils of marl and schist. This is a wine of deep character and complexity. Well-structured with beautiful aromas of roses, spice, cherries, boysenberries. On the palate, the wine shows like the nose but with added elements of roasted meat and hints of black coffee and bay leaves. This is a great wine to pair with lamb prepared with garlic and rosemary. It will even play well with North African flavors.

Aromas of tart apple, green olive, salty soil tones, a touch of bay leaf and a note of gently musky floral tones.

  • Domaine Gauby Coume Gineste Rouge 2012
    $85.00

    Red wine. Roussillon, France. Biodynamic. A stunning blend of almost all Grenache (from 90-100-year-old vines) that comes from a single, higher elevation parcel planted on schist soils and aged all in demi-muid. Plum, ground herbs, sage, rosemary, tar and licorice are just some of the nuances here, and this full-bodied, decadent and layered effort has tons of hedonistic appeal, yet stays remarkably elegant and seamless, with ultra-fine tannin and serious length.
