75cl Château Clement Termes Braucol, Syrah,Durus France > Languedoc Juicy, easy drinking
is a fruity blend of Braucol, Syrah and Duras, grown on chalky gravelly clay. It is fermented on the skins for 15 days with regular pumping over to extract colour. The wine is then aged in stainless steel for 12 months. A beautiful ruby colour with lots of raspberry and blackcurrant flavours in the mouth with some peppery hints. The finish is soft and fresh.

Chateau Clement Termes was founded in 1868 in the historic bastide town of Montaigut and the wines were originally delivered all over France in oak barrels, the clients being largely composed of churchmen. The Chateau remains within the David family to this day and respect for tradition and traditional grape varieties remains undimmed.. This is wine from some of the oldest vineyards in France.Clément Termes is situated on the right side of Tarn river, at the foot of the Gaillac Hills. The vines take advantage of this relief and of the various soils.With regular sun and cool nights in the summer, the vineyards produce ripe grapes with the potential to create fresh and aromatic wines. The local wind, called the « vent d’autan », which is dry and hot, contributes to the quality of the fruit.
