Gauby 2006 Les Calcinaires Rouge

Regular price £17.95

Gérard Gauby is 'the uncrowned king of the Roussillon' - a pioneering winemaker who has transformed his family estate from a mere producer of commodity grapes for the local co-op, to the source of some of the region's best wines. He informally classifies his wine in the Burgundian style, from 'village' to 'Premier Cru' to 'Grand Cru'. Les Calcinaires is his 'village' wine. Usually drunk within a couple of years of vintage, this fully mature parcel is a wonderful rarity.
