Domaine Gauby Vins de Pays des Cotes Catalanes Blanc les Calcinaires 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): The Gauby 2008 Cotes du Roussillon Blanc Les Calcinaire smells of white peach, fresh fig, lime, and lemon, along with coolingly herbal as well as pungently alkaline, chalky mineral overtones. On the palate, all of those features anticipated in the nose combine for a firm, bright, intensely pungent display, with notes of peach kernel and peach fuzz, citrus pips, and a tactile suggestion of somehow crystalline minerality adding to the sense of nervy vibrancy and leading to a lingering finish of vibratory energy that is at the same time refreshingly cooling in its evocation of wet stone and sweetly-aromatic herbs. I would plan to enjoy this while it is still succulent, over the next couple of years, though it might well remain fascinating for longer. (Jun 2011)
