"This is easily the best Gaillac wine that I have tried" Sean Mitchell, Grape Observer.
This is a great example of the wines that DiscoverVin is bringing to Australia. From an ancient vineyard that has been producing quality grapes for many centuries, premium grapes are now being made into modern, organic and clean wines while retaining characteristics typical of the terroir. Great value for money!
This wine is from the great vintage of 2014.
Terroir: Galliac is a small appellation north of Toulouse (map). It is at the confluence of influences from the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It is considered a rapidly improving region, driven by small independant producers such as Chateau de Saurs.
Grapes: A blend with Merlot, Syrah and indigenous grapes Braucol and Duras.
Winemaking: Traditional methods of harvesting and destemming. Harvested by parcels of vines which are pressed in separate vats, and vinified for 8 to 10 days at a maximum 30°C. Regular rotation for optimum extraction of colour, while at the same time preserving aromas. Fermentation takes place over 6 to 8 months in vats, then bottled.
Tasting notes : Chateau de Saurs Rouge La Constance has a deep red ruby-garnet colour, and has a very attractive bouquet of cherries, blackcurrants, with discreet hints of aniseed and cinnamon which are more present at the finish. A balanced, round, elegant wine revealing subtle soft tannins, it charms the palate and would be a good accompaniment to meat and cheese. Great to drink now but would improve with a further two or three years of cellaring.
Perhaps a little lighter in style than some of our other reds. This is a wine of tremendous quality at this price.
Single bottles, multiple bottles or complete boxes (6 bottles) may be ordered.
