The 6-hectare Domaine Hauvette is run along strictly biodynamic lines by Dominique Hauvette in the village of St-Remy de Provence in the appellation of Les Baux de Provence. Dominique's wines have become much sought-after in recent years largely due to the enthusiasm of Robert Parker for the wines. Like the nearby Domaine de Trevallon the wines made here are a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Grenache and are classically understated yet full of the earthy aromas and flavours of the garrigue.
A gorgeous ruby-red in colour. Intense aromas of black cherries and strawberries with notes of lavender, rosemary and thyme. On the palate dry and silky in texture with fresh acidity. Flavours of sweet black fruits with a hint of green olives and vanilla. The finish is short yet tannic and spicy. Great with rabbit stew with prunes and bacon, sweet & sour duck with cherries or a plate of spicy Saucisson d'Arles.
