Domaine de Joy ‘La Vie en Joy’ Blanc 2020
Domaine de Joÿ was founded in 1927 by Swiss emigrés Paul and Marguerite Gessler. The rolling hills of Cotes de Gascogne are perfectly situated for growing grapes to make still white wine and Armagnac. Domaine de Joÿ produces both, guided by minimal interventionist philosophies in the vineyards and cellar. Their ‘La Vie en Joy’ white is a blend of organic Sauvignon Blanc and Gros Manseng intended to be light, fun, and refreshing. The grapes are fermented with wild yeasts and the wine is left on the fine lees for four months to add texture and depth. Intense aromas of peach, apricot, lemon, and tropical fruit give way to a crisp and textured finish.
