The best places to visit when exploring Grenache grapes
We’ve started out in the Roussillon, so it is fitting to make our first stop one of the region’s premier producers of wine. Domaine Gauby produces a range of wines that use varying amounts of Grenache, from some 15 percent to about 50 percent. The remainder is the usual Provencal blending grapes. In addition, Gauby produces a fine white that is made of Grenache Gris and Grenache Blanc in a 50/50 blend.
Most of the vines here are quite old. The wines exhibit great depth and purity in a rich, mouth filling and popular style. Year in and year out, they are among the most highly acclaimed wines of the region.
