Domaine De Joÿ 'La Vie en Joy' Côtes De Gascogne 2020Regular price £11.50
A wonderfully aromatic wine, with hints of lemon surrounding a core of peach, apricot and pineapple. Savoury and rich, with a lovely balancing freshness and a touch of honey on the finish.
This 160-hectare estate dates back to 1927 when the Gessler family settled in Gascony and is now in the hands of the fourth generation of owner-winemakers. While the name ‘Joÿ’ brings to mind the apt modern English word meaning delight, the name of the estate actually dates back to the days of the French Revolution and is likely to be linked to the period of English rule over the nearby Aquitaine region in 14th century. The domain is certified HVE3 illustrating the family’s commitment to preserve the beauty and diversity of their surroundings. They produce stunning wines which truly reflect this wonderful terroir.
