The Wine:

‘Lo Sang de Pais’ or ‘blood of the soil.’ If ever there was a name to evoke terroir, this tribute to the red rocks that make up the vineyard satisfies. Made from the Mansois grape, or Fer Servadou in Gaillac, this wine is bright and cheeky, with flavours of raspberry and spice swirling amongst earthy tinges of slate and gravel. Medium bodied and youthful on the tongue, it is 12.5% alcohol and ready to drink at a temperature of 14˚C.

Fourth generation winegrowers, Philippe and Julien Teulier have been at the forefront of re-establishing this storied region’s reputation. Now the largest independent producer in the appellation at 22 hectares, they grow only the beautiful Fer Servadou grape, using methods and traditions passed down hand by hand.
