Domaine des Terrisses Gaillac 2006

Member Review by KeLuke:

We're in total agreement, this is a great medium bodied food friendly red. Smoky and savory with dark fruits like blueberries and black cherries. Oddly enough we had it with sushi and it cut right through the fatty tuna and left a soft feeling in our mouths. Great!

At Domaine des Terrisses they believe that wine is first and foremost the grape. Getting the best out of the association of grape variety, terroir and climate is what it’s all about. The date of harvest is essential as is the choice of parcel. Older vines are selected and then they patiently await the maturity of the grapes until they are almost over-ripe. The maceration is a long one and lasts for 3 weeks. After several rackings during the winter months, the clear wine is put into barrel. Their primary concern for this ageing process is to obtain the right balance between the wine (fruit), the wood (toasted notes, coffee, vanilla) and oxidation through the barrels. Blending follows and this prestige wine is then bottled. It’s an authentic Gaillac wine made from 80% Braucol and 20% Syrah from their oldest vines. A well-structured wine but with full, rich tannins.
