Domaine Philemon Croix d’Azal Gaillac 2010

The cuvee Croix d’Azal is produced entirely from Braucol, the name used in Gaillac for the Fer 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. $12.99

The favorite at our latest tasting at John’s Marketplace!
