Description

<p>The domaina was created by Jean-Pierre Gaussen and his wife Julia in 1962. Located in the heart of the best land in Bandol on the hill between the Castellet and La Cadiere dAzure. Starting with just over 1 ha, he purchased land piece by piece over the years, creating the vineyard and planting each vine himself, so that now the oldest part of the vineyard is reaching over 50 years. The average age of the vines are about a 30 years old.He also built cellars and house. Gravity does the most of the work in the cellars. It is located in a natural cave where the temperature is naturally cool. the style of of wine produced by Gaussen is very traditional, but the cellar has all the modern equipment which allows him perfectly control the vinification process for all his wines. Jean-Pierre is a very old school farmer who has always farmed without the use of pesticides or fertilizers,. When we asked about his thoughts on Organic and Biodynamic farming, his response is, I don't know the rules, I just farm the way I always have.</p>
