Superb originality signed by David Barrault from 2 almost forgotten grape varieties, the castet and the mancin of the Palus. A wine with aromas of wild berries, liquorice, white flowers, spices; fleshy and crunchy mouth.
Assemblage of two ancestral grape varieties of the Bordeaux region, now endangered: the castet and the mancin of Palus:
-The castet: discovered around 1870 in Gironde would originate from the small village of
Castets en Dorthe, located just a short distance from our estate!!
Quickly, this grape variety has a beautiful growth in the Aquitaine vineyard, with a
reputation, then was forgotten after the ravages of phylloxera around 1880, (insect
responsible for the destruction of a very large part of the French vineyard)
-The mancin of the Palus: also a very old girondin grape, it could
come from medieval times; In 1781, writings tell us about the beautiful
fame of this grape variety, dominating then in some Grands Crus of graves and the
Médoc! Now he's almost gone.
Surface in production: 0.8 HA
Located on hillsides in the South Langonnais area, this small property is held with care and passion by Hélène and David Barrault. This young couple has brought back to life this terroir by repeating, ten years ago, a heritage of old vines.
They produce superb fruit wines with a texture and depth as rarely found in this area, more known for its intense productivity and relative rusticity!
The latest vintages perfectly illustrate the progress of this field, which we strongly recommend.
The story of a name:
The coast of tire is named after a daily and well-known indigenous agrarian scene, according to which the beasts of the Somme were relieved of their efforts to climb to the property, "pulling the fart".
Since the end of 1997, Monsieur and Madame Barrault have cultivated these magnificent plots perched on their promontory.
A real terroir
Located on the top of argilo-limestone hillsides, overlooking the Garonne of 80 meters, this exceptional terroir exposed largely to the South, offers great qualitative potential.
The philosophy of the Castle
"The happiness of our profession is in the respect, the attention, the understanding brought to this terroir so that it delivers its finest fruits to us."
