Vineyard Notes: Grenache, Syrah and Carignan fruit is harvested by hand from scattered sloped parcels surrounding the Campdumy farmhouse near the commune of Cabasse. The vines are Cordon and Guyot. Yields are controlled through pruning, debudding, and green harvesting.
Winemaking Notes: Wine is extracted using a pneumatic press, Carignan is direct pressed. Following total destemming, wine ferments in stainless-steel tanks for 3-4 weeks. Selected yeasts are used only when necessary. Wine remains on its fine lees until assemblage prior to bottling. Malolactic fermenation is blocked using temperature control. The wine is aged separately for 3-6 months in stainless-steel tanks and blended before bottling.
Tasting Notes: Roselyn’s grandfather Bernard Gavoty (1906-1980) was a re- nowned classical music critic for France’s newspaper Le Figaro, and the name of this cuvée pays homage to the importance of music in the family’s history. “Récital” delivers the ethereal col- or, lip-smacking salinity, and bright fruits one expects from the appellation, but with a sumptuousness of texture and a swelling, clinging finish that is all Gavoty. It offers spectacular value, as well as notable personality for its category.
