Domaine Hauvette is a reference! The discreet winemaker Dominique Hauvette moved to Saint Rémy de Provence in 1988. She makes her first harvest while she owns only two hectares. Today, it grows 16 hectares in appellations Les Baux-de-Provence and Vin de Pays des Alpilles.
Domaine Hauvette continuously produces great red and white wines from Provence. The biodynamic culture since 2003 and the vinification without suffering by scraping and infusion respect the origin of the soil and the authenticity of its terroir. Domaine Dominique Hauvette has embarked on a breeding of its wines in “egg” tanks. These are cement-free eggs (zero magnetic field) where acidity and limestone claim their ying and yang neutrality. A stone cellar has also replaced the original cellar, allowing the creation of wines from the guard Domaine Hauvette Baux de Provence.
Domaine Hauvette produces mostly red wines, beautiful racy cuvées with a potential for keeping. These include the cuvée Domaine Hauvette Cornaline composed of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet-Sauvignon with its notes of black olive and truffle. The famous Amethyst cuvée is also known for its freshness, composed mostly of Cinsault with aromas of garrigue and cherry. Not to mention the white Hauvette cuvées such as Dolia slightly smoked with fennel aromas or Jaspe, sweet but also bitter on the finish.
It is the consecration for these wines from Provence whose qualities are no longer to be proved. In 2020, 3 stars in the Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France are awarded to Hauvette Dominique and her Domaine, in addition to the many awards already earned in the past. With the help of the Mediterranean climate and the closest to the environment, Hauvette strives to produce great wines always with respect for the terroir and its convictions. 2020, this is also the year of consecration for Dominique Hauvette as she was elected the best winemaker of the year by the Revue des Vins de France!
You will surely like
Dominique Hauvette Dolia is certainly one of the best whites of Provence: mineral, balanced, round, aromatic. Still this characteristic minerality, but a whole more tense and more balanced than the previous vintage. Notes of citrus, of hot earth. Mouth that opens on a very high density.
Dominique Hauvette demonstrates masterfully his know-how on this Cornaline Red wine, which develops on notes of red fruits (cherry) and black (prune). The palate is complex and long. Superb finish on freshness and slightly minty. An elegant, powerful, fleshy and intense red wine from Les Baux de Provence...
Domaine Hauvette Jaspe is a magnificent white 100 % Roussanne with a freshness, of the elegance and the greed. A big white of the South!
Pétra rosé is an intensely fruity wine, with heady notes of red fruit, violets and vine peaches. A hint of herbaceousness and a light minerality give this rosé from the Alpilles its pep. Fresh and delicious, it has a fluid texture and is a real invitation to eat without being too structured.Enjoy it in good company!
