This is a rustic wine. 50% braucol (also called fer) 20% duras, 20% syrah, and the final 10% unspecified. Stinky on the nose with spice, barnyard, an olive/briney note and a lot of earthy tones. The fruit is restrained. Medium tannins and a decent amount of acidity, with an olive tapenade note on the palate. A rustic, earthy wine. Well-made for the style, fans of earthy wines should enjoy it.

2010 vintage. A perfect gateway wine to the bizarre.

The ancient intriguing Gaillac region producing unique wines. Somehow changing the meaning of what a rustic wine is. Earthy and spicy lrose but still showing red fruits and minerality, thumbs up to Domaine des Terisses Gaillac for this rose.

Olives, brine and spice. Medium weight with an appropriate acidity. Lingering finish

Funky, earthy red wine reminiscent of cab franc. Good value.
