Voluptuous texture, vibrant salty strawberries, and a burst of freshness that initially attracted the world to this Provencal style of Rosé. This pale salmon-pink wonder is just what we all need to regain our trust and love for the astounding Rosé wines of this region. Gavoty has been selling their wines to high-end, discerning restaurants in France for years and has yet to be widely discovered abroad. This tiny producer is a true diamond in the rough. Eighth generation female winemaker, Roselyn Gavoty, is as down-to-earth and talented as it gets. We bow to you and your craft Roselyn!
This wine is so vibrant it needs equally ‘bright’ food. Lots of lemon and fresh herbs (basil, parsley, thyme, tarragon) – think mezze platter with zesty tabbouleh salad, baba ghanoush, hummus, Greek olives or tapenade. Perfect with a range of Mediterranean style foods.
Winemaker Roselyn Gavoty is the eighth generation to helm her family’s domaine since her ancestor Philémon acquired it in 1806. Domaine Gavoty encompasses 120 acres of vines on a Roman-era farm in the Côtes de Provence appellation. Surrounded by oak and pine forests, Gavoty is a polycultural farm encompassing 270 acres in total, and the family has worked the land without synthetic chemicals for decades, obtaining organic certification in recent years. ’La Cigale” is named for the ubiquitous cicadas that populate the region – often considered a symbol of good luck or happiness.
