Owned by the Gavoty family since the revolution, this estate has remained true to its traditions and produces good quality Provencal wines. Currently under the guidance of Rosalind Gavoty, the rosés have greate fruit and character and are widely regarded by many Provencal winemakers as being the epitome of Provencal rosé. The reds made with 30 year old Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon yield rich intense fruit. The Gavoty family have strong musical traditions - the main label shows a harpist and the top cuvée is called Hautbois (oboe). Along these lines the family host numerous concerts during the summer months.
