Technical information

Grape varieties
100% Mauzac
Age of the vines
between 40 and 80 years
Yield
40 hl per hectare
Harvesting
The harvest is carried out manually in crates to avoid compacting the grapes as much as possible. The main focus remains on quality.
Vinification
The Gaillacoise method, unlike champagne, is made in a natural way, without the addition of sugar (to achieve the setting of the foam), and without the addition of expedition liquor (which makes it possible to measure out brut or demi-sec). It is only the sugar in the grapes which, throughout the process, will ensure the first fermentation, the setting of the foam and the residual sugar contained in the Gaillacoise method.

Tasting

Visual
Pale yellow colour. Clear and brilliant. Long and fine bubbles.
Olfactory
Very pleasant and aromatic nose. The aromas are dominated by apple and pear.
Taste
Pleasant opening. The apple and pear notes are present, and the finish is fresh. The fine bubbles leave a sensation of softness, like in the greatest champagnes, with some extra originality...
Ageing
The bubbles may be kept for 2 to 3 years.
Food and wine pairing
This wine goes very well with desserts, especially with all fruit tarts. It can also be served as an aperitif.
It deserves to be known!

A little bit of story...

This wine made the reputation of Gaillac wines at the beginning of the century. It is a very old method, present long before the discovery of Dom Pérignon. The writings of the commission of antiquities of the city of Castres (city of the Tarn) concluded by saying "we do not attribute the invention of the white wine (sparkling) to Dom Pérignon, during the period 1668-1695, but well before the year 1591, since the rustic house of this time already mentions it".
