2012 - 75 cl

AOC Gaillac

South West France

The terroir Located on the right bank of the Tarn, on sandy-clay soils with very particular gravelly soil conditions. Grape variety 99% Braucol (or Fer Servadou) 1% Duras. Vinification: After cutting back in winter, thinning down the shoots and removing excess future fruit canes, a stripping and manual thinning of the unwanted grapes then follows. The harvest is gathered in the earliest hours of the morning and by hand, and each cluster is selected and transported carefully in crates.  After destemming and pressing, traditional pressing us undertaken under strictly controlled temperatures and a significant pumping-over frequency. Maceration takes 12 to 14 days.Ageing takes 24 months in 400l oak barrels (medium heat plus) then a part remains for 5 months in terracotta amphorae (a blend of 3 types of pottery) which gradually reveals multiple aromatic elements, an adds to the palate a touch of body and incompatible minerality.

DOMAINE SARRABELLE

81310 Lisle-sur-Tarn - South West France

Vine-growers since 1795, Domaine Sarrabelle, from the legend to the expression of the terroir. Legend has it that the Sarrabelle source that gushes near to the Medieval Château de Montaigut was the place that those in love with the beautiful Yolande met. The name comes from the Occitan "Sarro-bello", to take the beautiful one in one's arm... The Château, destroyed during the Albigeois Crusades, had its lower parts still standing and above it was built the Chapel of Montaigut. Today, Laurent and Fabien Caussé (eighth generation of wine-makers on the estate) gave the name of this source to their wines. From traditional "vin de pays", to top of the range wines, such as the Saint André and the Mauzac de Sarrabelle. Ongoing research and respect for traditional agriculture has resulted in the creation of a limited edition vin doux, served at some of the best tables. Tradition, innovation and quality is the Caussé brothers' motto.
