Presentation of the vineyard
Domaine Gavoty is located not far from the village of Cabasse in the middle of the countryside and right in the middle of the great rosé district "Haut-Var." The vineyard was one of the first in Cabasse and it's actually one of the older wineries in the whole of Provence. The estate has always belonged to the Gavoty family, who founded the winery already in 1806. Today it's Roselyne who represents the 8th generation of wine growers and she controls both the viticulture and the winemaking. The particularity of the wines from Domaine Gavoty, is that the grapes are macerated after the harvest to create fruity wines with powerful aromas. Oak barrels are banned here and the wines are created exclusively with the aromas from the fuit juice. The wines of Gavoty are regularly commented in French wine guides and are served in the better restaurants in both Paris and in the provinces.
A bright yellow color with silvery hues. A scent of pineapple and other exotic fruits. A dry, fresh palate with lively acidity, however, a balanced overall impression. A white wine to drink as an aperitif or to a fish on the grill.
