Rasdu Causse Marines, biodynamic wine, 100% Duras, local variety to the Gaillac and Southwest France, outstanding intensity, opulence and smooth black fruits on nose and palate. The warm 2018 vintage has created a stunning wine. Although at 15% abv, this is not for quaffing. Duras is a grape only really grown in the Tarn region of Southwest France to the north east of Toulouse. It tends to be blended with other grapes like Fer Servadou but in Gaillac, it can be found as a single varietal. Causses Marines make a single Duras only in the good vintages as in 2018. When they make it, we are very fortunate because it is gorgeous wine. Its natural peppery flavour and tannins are softened by the warmth of the dark fruits and rich texture. Super duper, gorgeous wine for winter with any winter food.
