I just wanted to let you know that my order arrived safely yesterday, and we decided to try the confit de canard, it was delicious and we both thought it was one of the best confit we have eaten, and we eaten quite a lot as we spend at least a month or more in France each year and we have visited most regions including “Les Landes”. Also Your print out of advice on storage etc is very helpful and would be very helpful to younger people who aren’t always so knowledgeable about food storage other than using a fridge as Larders don’t really exist very much any longer. We are very much looking forward to trying your other things, my husband especially wants to try the snails. He told me to re-order some more confit, which I am definitely going to do, but just want to try the rillettes and snails, but will definitely be re-ordering before the end of the month, he is also very keen to try your Soupe de Homard. So thrilled to have found your web site, by chance through Google, but will be telling my friends and family. Thank you once again Yours sincerely Alexandra Galliers-Pratt. Nov 2018)

Gaillac Rouge, Blanc, Rosé & Fizz

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 develop.

The whites are based on Mauzac, Len de l’Elmaison_3.JPG (Loin de l’Oeil; the ‘eyes’ –buds- are far apart on the vine) with a little Sauvignon Blanc. The Méthode Ancestrale is 100% Mauzac.
Mauzac
is very aromatic with a distinct taste of green apple and also used in Limoux area. The Len de l’El is more floral and blends well with the Mauzac.
The ever popular rosé is 100% Syrah.
The new Secret de nos coteaux & Vin des Grives blanc & rosé are sippers rather than gluggers and will appeal to the connoisseur!
