Jaspe is fermented in concrete eggs and aged briefly in stainless steel. A gorgeous perfume of honeysuckle meets the nose, and the wine is at once both lush and nervy, comforting and stimulating. It is picture-perfect with Provençal cuisine, those garlicky, herby, tomato-based dishes that sometimes give white wine a hard time.
Often silent and reflective, there is a certain aura about Dominique Hauvette. More than thirty years ago, she settled in Saint Rémy de Provence where she has ever since been crafting majestic wines.
