Assembled into a foudre when I tasted it the Gauby 2007 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Vieilles Vignes - relatively equally divided among Carignan Grenache and Syrah with a smaller amount of Mourvedre and exposed to around 20% new wood - smells of thyme rosemary fennel and tar along with ripe black fruits. With a bitter edge to its almost severe palate concentration of cassis blackberry juniper berry resinous herbs licorice and tar this strikingly dense palate-staining cuvee exhibits a juiciness of fresh fruits and exuberance as well as a refinement of tannins that distinguish all of the best recent Gauby wines and that keep it from austerity. Nor - amid a virtual torrent of finishing fruit - is a diversity of impressions missing that while hard-to-describe can only be categorized as mineral. I would anticipate being rewarded by bottles of this for 12-15 years.
