Gerard Gauby has often been described as the uncrowned king of the Roussillon, organically cultivating a total of 45ha of vines comprising 150 different parcels which include soil types as diverse as limestone, clay-limestone, schist, marl and even a reddy-coloured sandstone called grès(well-known to lovers of Chateauneuf-du-Pape). The search for elegance and finesse ends here. In a region dominated by average cooperatives Gerard has done for Roussillon what Aimé Guibert did for Languedoc, namely he put it on the map. He works his vines organically and uses biodynamic methods. He ensures very low yields by hard pruning and green harvesting. He also sorts his harvest grape by grape. One of the finest domains in Southern France.
