    Winemaker Notes

    The Domaine du Moulin Gaillac Cuvee Reserve Rouge 2014 has alluring aromas and flavors of blueberry, pepper and spice. Medium-bodied with a balanced structure, this characterful red finishes firm and dry with interesting smoky and red cherry notes.

    Enjoy ever-so slightly chilled. Pair with a roasted, free-range bird from the farmer's market with herbs du Provence.

    Blend: 50% Syrah, 50% Duras

    Domaine du Moulin, Southwest, France
    Image of winery
    This venerable Gaillacoise domaine has been passed from father to son in an unbroken line of Hirissous since 1827. The current proprietors, Jean Paul and Nicolas, represent the fifth and sixth generations of vignerons to run the estate.

    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). Two of the more famous subregions here are Cahors, known for its Malbec, and Madiran, home of the robust Tannat grape. Bordeaux Blends are also popular red wines 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 enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. 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.
