2016 Le Soula Blanc, Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes

Gérard Gauby established this domaine in the foothills of the Pyrenées, cherishing the spot for the freshness and expression it produced in these old vine whites. This is an esoteric blend, including Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino, among many others. The 2016 is their current release, showing how much Le Soula believe in the ageing potential of their wines. Notes of greengage, fennel and orange blossom on the nose, with a taut yet intense palate. Totally delicious.

2016 Le Soula Blanc, Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes
Domaine Gauby

The first vintage of Le Soula wasn’t produced until 2001, but it’s fast become a star of the Roussillon, winning praise from critics like Jancis Robinson. It’s a project that was started by Gérard Gauby, the region’s most renowned winemaker, supported by English investors, Mark Walford and Roy Richards. The Roussillon’s long been known for cheap and cheerful drinking wines, but Gérard knew it was capable of more. So he sought out neglected vineyards high in the Pyrenean foothills, to work old, low-yielding vines biodynamically. Winemaker Wendy Paillé’s field blends age magnificently, and are the best ambassadors we can imagine for the region.
