Tasting Notes:

"According to Andrew Jefford in 'The New France': "The burly and exuberant Gerard Gauby's 32-ha biodynamic estate based at Calce is not only one of the best estate in Roussillon, but also one of the finest domains in Southern France. Gauby ensures very low yields by hard pruning and green harvesting. He also sorts his precious harvest grape by grape... Gauby has eased back slightly on the power of his extraction over the last few vintages, providing wines of greater sumptuousness and less brute force." Les Calcinaires is a strapping red, blended from grenache with a little carignan and cabernet sauvignon. The soils are chalky, hence the name Calce, from calcaire, but there is also some schist. Some of the grenache vines date from 1947. "

3.5 stars "peppery and spicy nose. On the palate, medium-bodied, fruity with a well-balanced acidity."
