Availability: In stock (8)

Domaine Hauvette is located near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a tourist town known for Roman ruins and as the place where Van Gogh painted “The Starry Night”. The domaine is situated among the foothills of Les Alpilles, and the vines are cultivated in a rocky, wild environment. In the early 1980s, Dominique Hauvette, seeking more sunshine, left her job as a lawyer in the Savoie and re-discovered her passion for raising horses, and began studying oenology. Today, Dominique now has an international reputation for making benchmark natural and biodynamic wines. She was one of the first to experiment fermentation in concrete eggs, known as amphorae, which has become a popular practice. The “Cornaline” is a bold wine comprised of 50% grenache, 30% syrah, and 20% cabernet sauvignon, all from clay and limestone soils and 40+-year-old vines, and is matured in very large wooden vat called a foudre. Her wines are neither fined nor filtered, so this “Cornaline” is a very pure expression of grape character and terroir, bold with soft tannins and balanced amounts of fruit and earth. Biodynamically grown, low-intervention, vegan.
