The Gaillac AOC straddles the Tarn river, approximately fifty kilometers northeast of Toulouse. Perhaps as a result of its location on the river, which facilitated transportation to other regions, Gaillac was one of the first viticultural centers of ancient Gaul. Grapes have been cultivated here for the purpose of making wine since the first century A.D.
Offering the perfect balance of quality and value, Southwest, France is a recognized appellation that encompasses all wine regions in France’s southwestern corner (except for Bordeaux and Cognac, which merit their very own). Bordeaux red varieties are responsible for most reds of the Southwest; Petit Manseng is the regions’s star autochthonous white variety.
With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
