GRAPES

  • Prunelart : 100%

« Prunelart » is a native grape from Gaillac. It was grown a lot in the past. In the 16th century, Olivier de Serres, nicknamed « the father of the integrated Farming », said : « it gives one of the best wines of the Kingdom ».

Unfortunately, this grape disappeared during the Philoxera epidemic. In fact, it’s a difficult grape to manage especially because of its very small & tight berries.

Nowadays, there are around 10 hectares of Prunelart in France, mostly in the Gaillacois.

Aged in tanks.
