Product Description

Chateau de Saurs is situated in the Gaillac region in the south-west of France 50km from Toulouse (map)

This chateau has been in the hands of the same family since the 16th century. It is now in the process of conversion to organic production.

The vineyard extends for 42 ha, growing selcted grape varities to produce wines of the Gaillac appelation (white, rosé and red)

Chateau de Saurs AOC Gaillac Blanc Doux is made from a selected parcel of Loin de l'Oeil of more than 40 years old. The grapes are late-picked at the peak of ripeness during October.

Grapes: 100% Loin de l'Oeil ('Lew-an-de-le-oh-eye"). An ancient variety indigenous to Gaillac.

Winemaking: Fermentation occurs at low temperatures during 3 weeks in order to preserve the aromas of the grapes. The wine is then aged in oak for 12 months before bottling

Tasting notes: A clear and developed pale yellow/orange colour with a pleasent nose of apples, pears and citrus/marmalade. The mouth-feel is ample with concentrated fruit and a fresh and balanced finish.

Nice to drink on its own, the French suggest accompanying foie gras/paté, but equally we love it with fruit based desserts or creamy desserts like cream brulée or with a cheese plate

Alcohol: 13.5%
