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.

 

Castel de Brames is 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, mostly whites and reds.

Castel de Brames vines, why are they rare?

These vineyards grow three ancient varieties which until relatively recently are only found in the Gaillac region.

Here you can sample a wine from the same grapes the Romans and quite possibly, earlier peoples would have used.

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.

One variety makes a white Perle Tradition wine, slightly sparkling, said to have inspired champagne, a clear, bright light yellow colour with green tints.
This wine 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.
I’ll tell you more on my web site, soon, watch for the blog entry and on this page.
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.
