Staff Pick Notes

About 30 miles from Toulouse you'll find the town of Gaillac, whose local namesake wine has been made for two thousand years. That's a long time ago! Founded by the Gauls, the area is home to the Duras grape, which is not widely grown outside the region and adds to how special this wine is. Fermented in cement tanks and aged on its lees, its a fantastic rich wine whose freshness keeps it relatively light on its feet. The Duras is blended with 30% Braucol, known outside of Gaillac as Fer Servadou, which adds some red currant notes and aromas to the Duras' dark berry profile. Biodynamic, unfined, and like many wines from this region, an absolute steal. Give me some foie gras, brie, and a bottle of this on a crisp fall day and call me a happy Gourmand.

A dark-berried grape, once widely planted in France's Gaillac region and beginning to regain popularity, that produces well-structured, deeply colored red wines.
