I've found Maxxis refuse to be very nice tires in terms of durability while still riding okay. They aren't going to feel like race tires but they are the most flat resistant road tires I've ever ridden. I the newer tubeless models in the wider widths is nice as well but I imagine that won't fit you're frame as 32mm is the narrowest tubeless option.

Most road tires will work on hardpack gravel, lower the tire pressure some and take it easier in the corners. Avoid chatter bumps and potholes as much as possible and get out of/float over the saddle when going over them. Using the softer race tires aren't the best option as the rubber tends to get cut up a bit and you'll lose some longevity. I personally like the vittoria pave' or similar for gravel racing if I'm not rolling CX tubulars, as example of a higher end tire that does well on gravel.
