Chateau La Gordonne

 

Chateau La Gordonne

Before social distancing we chose La Goulue , a fabulous French restaurant located in NYC’s Upper East Side as our spot to toast the start of the summer of 2020 with a few bottles of rosé from Chateau La Gordonne. Château La Gordonne mark on the history of spirits is legendary. As early as the 1st century BC, the Romans set up on the site of La Gordonne to take advantage of its vines and its wines, but above all, to enjoy the exceptional microclimate of La Gordonne’s schist crater. In 1300, the Carthusians from the La Verne monastery near Pierrefeu du Var began working the vineyard. Sully, a fine connoisseur, stayed at La Gordonne several times, although it was known as ‘La Mayon d’Aurran’ at the time. The estate was planted with vines and olive trees and took its name from Conseiller de Gourdon, who owned it from 1650 to 1663. Then in 1663, the Conseiller de Dedons, Lord of Pierrefeu, bought part of the Aurran property known as ‘La Gordonne’ and its house, vines, and olive trees.

 

 

A Bottle Of Rosé For The Table

The Château la Gordonne is one of the largest properties in Provence with over 350 hectares, 300 of which are vines. The Pierrefeu terroir in the Massif des Maures is an exceptional site. In its beautiful setting within a natural schist crater, the Château La Gordonne vineyard enjoys a special microclimate. Its winters are mild, and the summers are hot and dry, sometimes scorching, which means that the vines can soak up all the strength of the Provençal sun, with 3,000 hours of sunshine a year.

 

 

Waterside refreshments

The Mistral, a dry, strong wind, plays a major role as it sweeps across the plantations, protecting the vines from damp-related diseases. The vines are grown on a limestone and clay plain and on the schist slopes. The soil has little humus and is permeable, shallow, stony, and well-drained, bringing together the ideal conditions for the vines to flourish.   Vérité du terroir rosé 2017 – aoc côtes de Provence: this refreshing promise is affirmed in the mouth by dominant notes of raspberry and redcurrant underscored by the freshness of citrus. This rosé wine’s harmony and perfect balance prolong the pleasure of tasting in a long, sweet finale La Chapelle Gordonne rosé 2017 – côtes de Provence: the nose has great finesse. Pink grapefruit and linden blossom notes reveal this wine’s vibrant mineral quality in a poetic evocation of the sun rising over the Provence garrigue on a summer day. On the palate, the wine is ample and balanced around sensations of freshness, delicacy, and sweetness. It is bursting with small fresh fruits such as the arbutus berries on the wooded hillsides of the schist terroir of the château la Gordonne. The long, pleasant finale expresses the finesse and flavor of wild strawberry sorbet. Cirques des Grives rosé 2015 – aoc côtes de Provence: it offers a refined and elegant nose that reveals excellent complexity. It offers notes of strawberries and the arbutus berries that you chance upon in the heart of the grives vineyard. It is all enveloped in velvety, very lightly-toasted vanilla notes, a foretaste of the pleasant harmony to come. The wine is attractive and perfectly balanced on the palate, offering freshness, refinement, and complexity. All its aromas continue on the palate and contribute to the wine’s long finish.
