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!
Dominique Hauvette offers us this vintage Arpège in Côtes du Roussillon dense and gourmet. A sunny Côtes du Roussillon to the immediate pleasure! A wine that dethrones appellations much more in sight and not only in Provence. This wine is alive, dense, warm, nourishes, regenerates and would make a vegetarian want to throw himself on a rib of beef.
The latest creation of Dominique Hauvette in the heart of the Alpilles, the cuvée Fugue is a 100 % Vermentino that highlights the freshness of its terroir and the floral notes and exotic fruits characteristic of the grape variety. It is also recognised with beautiful aromas of hawthorn, almond and sweet spices as well as a hint of bitterness on the finish.
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...
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.
Domaine Hauvette red Baux de Provence is sublime! A deep red wine, mineral and like all the wines of Dominique Hauvette. The Cuvée Amethyste is simply a UFO! To discover absolutely!
