Pure varietal Crus

The Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir wine varieties express in their own way the unique terroir of the Plateau Cordais in Gaillac. “Wine genius comes from the varietal”, said the father of viticulture studies, Dr Jules Guyot. In this sense, the pure varietal Crus are individual expressions of Comte de Thun.

La-tarabelle@2x

„La Tarabelle“ Syrah

Reflects the old Gaillac terroir with its sparse, high altitude locations perfectly. The ground consists of aged limestone with a very sandy und clay-containing topsoil, interspersed with many fist-sized stones. Syrah is known from the former Gaul since the 3rd century. It reveals an intense flavour reminiscent of mixed pepper, pencil lead and a potpourri of dark forest berries, bitter chocolate and coffee. Its tannins are fine and taut, its acidity refreshing. This wine has style, charisma and enormous storage potential.

la-maze@2x

„La Maze“ Merlot

Dark, almost shading into black, La Maze is a densely structured but elegant wine. Its rich scent of wild berries, plums and black cherries is scented with white pepper, juniper, green tea as well as smoky notes. This mineral-flavoured wine has a velvety but taut tannin structure and shows a beautiful red fruit acidity. La Maze is a Cru grown on a hilly terroir which lies around 270 m above sea level and consists of aged limestone with a clay-dominated topsoil. La Maze produces wine with high storage potential.

La-cabane@2x (1)

Cabernet Franc

The Cabernet Franc also comes from the La Maze location. Herby and spicy, with a scent of dark wild berries and mineral notes, as well as fine tannins and a fresh acidity, our Cabernet Franc is a wine of substance despite the young age of the vines.

Pinot-noir@2x

Pinot Noir

At first glance, the Pinot Noir seems to be an absurdity in Gaillac; on the second, it proves to be a ‘home-comer’. Its delicate scent of sweet fruit is irresistible: pure black cherry, black pepper, fresh menthol and gentle notes of bacon. Add to this the subtle tannins, the fresh acidity and the juiciness and you can easily imagine a wine that dances well into its long finish.

La Parrazal

La Parrazal is a cuvée made from Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This red wine reflects the characteristics of the individual wine varieties admirably and captivates due to its complex composition.

la-parrazal@2x

La Parrazal

The Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon wine varieties, connected with Gaillac for centuries, are reunited in the Parrazal. It reflects the characteristic features of each grape variety perfectly. Its scent is strongly marked by Syrah aromas while, on the palate, Merlot and Cabernet show up with their fruit-like character of red berries and cassis. The bouquet is completed by silky tannins and herbal freshness.

The cuvée Parrazal originates from single varietal wines made from comparatively young vines. It is elaborated in close collaboration with a very valued friend of our house, the sommelier Paula Bosch.
