Domaine de Joy L'Eclat Cotes de Gascogne
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.
