Domaine Gavoty La Cigale
This is a wine that is at its best when young. A nose of ripe red fruits and a palate that is supple and elegant. Located in the town of Cabasse the vineyard has been in the Gavoty family since 1806.
Owned by the Gavoty family since 1806, the estate is currently run by the eighth generation. Starting in 1985 Roselyne Gavoty took charge of the wine-making process, and gave new commercial impetus to the estate. In 2001, she took over management of the entire operation, with the help of her husband Hervé. Together they organically farm the 43 hectares of vineyards and has a deep respect for the environment. Sheltered from the sea by the Maures Massif, winters here can be severe, -10°C is not uncommon, and summer nights are cool, giving the wines great balance.
