Domaine De Joy L'Eclat Cotes De Gascogne 2021

A deliciously aromatic and fruity wine showing flavours of
grapefruit, lemongrass and a hint of lychee, zingy and
fresh on the finish.
Producer Note
This 180-hectare estate dates back to 1927 when the Gessler family settled in Gascony
and is now in the hands of the fourth generation of owner-winemakers Vanessa and
Kevin Gessler. While the name ‘Joÿ’ brings to mind the apt modern English word
meaning delight, the name of the estate actually dates back to the days of the French
Revolution and is likely to be linked to the period of English rule over the nearby
Aquitaine region in 14th century. The domain is certified HVE3 illustrating the family’s
commitment to preserve the beauty and diversity of their surroundings and 10 hectares
are in conversion to organic status. Together, Vanessa and Kevin produce stunning
wines which truly reflect this wonderful terroir.
Vineyard
The 160 hectare estate is situated in the Northern Gers, where the vineyards have a
south facing orientation to maximise the sunlight. The vines have an average age of 25
years and are planted at 300 metres above sea level. The soils are clay-siliceous and
silty; they are cool soils which contribute to the freshness of the resulting wines,
providing balance with alcohol levels which rarely reach over 12.5%. The vineyards are
farmed sustainably; the vine clippings are crushed and composted back into the soil.
Copper is used in the vineyard but the use of pesticides has always been kept to a
minimum. The vineyard is now in conversion to organic status and is farmed according
to organic principles. Harvesting takes place in the cool of the night, between 3am and
10am to retain freshness and quality.
Winemaking
The grapes were entirely destemmed and vinified in a combination of stainless steel
tanks and glass fibre vats, at controlled temperatures of 17 to 20°C. Fermentation took
place with natural, wild yeasts and lasted between 18 to 21 days, with weekly stirring of
the lees. The wine was matured on the fine lees for up to four months, imparting texture
and then stabilised at 8°C for 24 hours before being prepared for bottling.
Tasting Note
A deliciously fresh and fruity wine showing flavours of grapefruit, lemongrass and a hint
of lychee. The mellow fruit is meshed with lovely fresh acidity giving length to the palate
and the vibrant, citrus finish makes it very moreish.
