Domaine des Terrisses has been the property of the Cazottes family since 1750. The vineyard is situated along the Premiere Cotes of Gaillac, the hillsides facing south-southwest toward the Tarn River. The Rouge is produced from a blend of 50% Braucol, 30% Duras and 20% Syrah sourced from the center of the hillside, with clay soils over hard limestone. Each variety is harvested and fermented separately. Remontage (pumping over) is carried out twice daily. Racking takes place during the winter and the blending is done in the spring. The wine is held in tank for a year before bottling. A brilliant wine, with the structure of a bordeaux, and the flavors of a Rhone wine - with a little twist. Lovely with cheeses, salads, and all things chicken.
