This is the first time I have used Confit Direct. I like the clear instructions on the storage and serving, particularly the Foie Gras Entier. It was also helpful to be able to order the Onion and Fig confit to go with the Foie Gras. I am addicted to rillette and was delighted to find this also available. Having spent a considerable amount of time in France and being accustomed to these products being served for ‘fetes’ I am thrilled at being able to order these products now that I travel to France infrequently. The ordering was easy and delivery and packaging impeccable. Thank you. (Rosamund W. from Dorset. Dec 2017)

Gaillac Rouge

mai_juin_2007_(31).jpgLe Mas de Bicary, Claude and Christine Rouquié

Stocked by us since 2002

With the financial pressures wine producers are under today, it is exceptionally rare to find a grower making a large amount of wine for keeping. Claude and Christine Rouquié are amongst these rarities, stocking so many different vintages. These are serious, very fruity, very full wines, with soft tannins which will age tremendously well. They have a beautiful deep red colour, a powerful bouquet, and a rich taste. What is more they are reasonably priced.
The cuvées ‘Fût de chêne’ and ‘Réserve’ are from Merlot and the local Braucol (aka Fer Servadou).
The Gaillac Rouges are an ‘assemblage’ of Merlot, Braucol, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and the local Duras (nothing to do with Côtes de Duras). The new 'Fricassou' is from local grape varieties only (quite unusual) with 90%  Braucol and 10% Duras. These wines are generally very fruity and rich with good tannin. This means that they can be drunk after 3 years but will still be excellent after 8 or 10. Watch them.
