Domaine des Terrisses has been the property of the Cazottes family since 1750. The vineyard is situated along the “Premiere Cotes” of Gaillac, the hillsides facing south-southwest toward the Tarn river. The vineyard is planted almost entirely with the traditional grape varieties of the region; Mauzac and Len de L’ehl for the whites and Braucol and Duras for the reds. Domaine des Terrisses offers a wide range of wines which is typical of the Gaillac appellation and is a reminder of the region’s long historical and cultural links with wine.
The Blanc Sec is produced from a blend of 40% Len de L’ehl, 40% Mauzac and 20% Sauvignon Blanc from vines at the base of a band of eastern facing hillsides known as the Premieres Côtes. Juice from the first pressing is used and fermentation is in temperature controlled tanks. The wine rests on its lees until bottling, which is done toward the end of the spring.
