Domaine Gauby Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes les Calcinaires 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

91+ points Rhone Report: More concentrated and backwards, the 2009 Domaine Gauby Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Les Calcinaires, a blend of mainly Syrah but with some Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Carignan, took the better part of the evening to open up, showing deep black raspberry and currant styled fruits, resiny underbrush, herbs, and a saline-like minerality that really showing on the palate. Medium-bodied and balanced, with a crunchy, crisp mouth-feel, excellent concentration, and a tannic finish, this beautiful Roussillon should be given 1-2 years of bottle age, and then consumed over the following decade.

Balanced, well-integrated, and tasty. Inviting nose of perfume, nail polish, bay leaves, hints of dust. In the mouth chewy, meaty, smoky berry fruit in a gentle tannic-metallic wrapper with elements in similar proportions. Finishes of same.
