similar to 'gore' in English but with a frencher sounding 'r' (i.e with a bit of added phlegm)
thanks we have been wonderin this for a long time
Note that the vowel in "gaure" could also be (and possibly would usually be, though it does depend on individuals' pronunciation) the "high" or "close" o vowel, as in the word mot.

Incidentally, "gaure" (also with other spellings, e.g. "gor(r)e") is a now obsolete French word that used to mean "elegant".
