Near Gaillac, not so easy to find, at one time the site of an ancient castle, in the heart of L’Occitane, a region long aeons famous for wines chosen for kings.

Castel de Brames produces wines from some of the oldest stock of vines in all France, the roots go directly back to Phoenician and Roman times; very special, you simply can’t find these wines anywhere else, thus they are ideal exclusive gifts.

This outstanding ‘produteur’ attracted my attention for many reasons not least because it is the only home of 3 of the rarest, oldest vines in France.

Furthermore Alain Boullenger is a walking encyclopedia.

With Alain I found myself reading a beautiful book on vines and wines of Gaillac published in 1861…

Researched on location, painted at the request of the Municipale de Gaillac for an exhibition in December 2016.

Found in the south west of this historic wine-producing region near the bastide port of Lisle-sur-Tarn, Castel de Brames, meaning in the southern pre French language of L’Occitaine ‘fortified place where it rains’ or ‘where there is water’ offers some very rare wines, whites and reds.

Why are they rare?

The Braucol has roots that go back to Roman times maybe deeper.

The Duras has roots almost as ancient.

The Muscadelle vines are 60 years old, low yield, sweet, not to sweet, sweetly memorable.

The vineyards grow three ancient varieties only found in the Gaillac region.
One makes a white Perle Tradition wine, slightly sparkling, said to have inspired champagne, a clear, bright light yellow colour with green tints. It has a delicate and fruity aroma, a delightful wine with a crisp, dry flavours and a refreshing finish.
The red varieties include a vine thought to be semi wild and another that gave birth to the immensely popular cabernet-sauvignon.
Here you can sample a wine from the same grapes the Romans would have used…
I’ll tell you more on my web site, soon, watch for the blog entry and on this page.
Meanwhile, it’s summer, if you can drive to Gaillac and try for yourself, direct from the producteur, these memorable distinctive wines.

I consider myself very fortunate to have been so generously received, to have learned so much and I hope I’ll do justice to and benefit this exceptional vineyard and it’s welcoming people.
