Domaine d'Escausses Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Gaillac la Vigne de l'Oubli 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The serious side of Gaillac. Domaine d'Escausses is located halfway between Albi and the medieval village of Cordes. The climate is a balance of oceanic with Mediterranean influences. There are 26 hectares under vines for AOC production. The soil is a mixture of marne and sedimentary limestone and the vineyards are treated with organic and mineral-based manures. LaVigne de l'Oubli, from a mixture of fifteen to fifty year old vines, is a barrel-fermented blend of Sauvignon (50%), Mauzac and Muscadelle spending twelve months on the lees in new oak and has a subtle flavour of dried fruits and curry spices.
