The cuvée « Croix d’Azal » is produced from a one hectare planted by Mathieu in 2003. It is planted entirely with Braucol, the name used in Gaillac for the Fer Servadou grape. It is a wonderful expression of this grape variety with all of its typical spiciness and woodsy floral aromas. The word “braucol” derives from the root “brau” which in Girondin patois signifies taureau, the bull. The Croix d’Azal is no raging bull but one who lives peacefully in the pasture content to smell the flowers.
100% Braucol (Fer Servadou) from southwest France. Sappy dry blackberry juice with fine ground white and black pepper.
