Tasting Notes

Not far from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, the place where Van Gogh painted “The Starry Night,” you’ll find Domaine Hauvette nestled in the foothills of Provence. This comes from older vines (40+) planted in clay and limestone soils. This cuvée was fermented in wooden tanks and aged in old casks.
