Region: Gaillac AOC (SW France)
It is a wonderful expression of this grape variety not seen outside of Southwest France.
The cuvée 'Croix de la Bouscarie' is produced entirely in Duras, from a 20 hectare certified organic vineyard that's been run by the Vieules family since 1804. It is a wonderful expression of this grape variety not seen outside of Southwest France.
On the nose, the spice is evident, with a touch of violets and dried blueberry. On the palate we get dark berry fruit, fennel seed, good acidity, minerality that adds some depth, and firm tannins on the finish. Great with up to an hour of decanting.
Try it with:
Creamy mushroom pasta, foie gras, rack of lamb, lentils with roasted red peppers and tomatoes over rice, holiday meals.
Here we add information on wines as they come in. We will try to keep up with out-of-stocks and vintage changes but we make no promises. For the most up to date information call, email or stop by. Cheers!
