  • Winemaker Notes Domaine de Pellehaut has been owned and managed by successive generations of the Béraut family for over 300 years. Situated in the heart of Gascony, Pellehaut benefits from the region's wonderful microclimate. Brothers Martin and Mathieu Béraut tend this family estate, one of the oldest vineyards in the Gers (300 years old). They produce a range of Armagnacs as well as breeding cattle (Blondes d’Aquitaine), all this in harmony with a rich surrounding biodiversity. More recently, they have begun to produce a complete range of fresh, aromatic and easy-to-drink wines which are a pleasure to drink at any time of year.
  • Tasting Notes Violet-tinged crimson hue denoting youth. Nose of red currant and black currant, with overripe wild strawberry and spices. The palate is round, pleasant and supple. Fruitiness takes precedence over structure here – an array of fresh fruit flavors awaits you in this Harmonie de Gascogne! A light red wine best served chilled.
  • Vineyard The vineyard is situated on three gently rolling hills.
  • Vinification The fermentation consists of pumping every day, then the wines are left in tank to macerate for around ten days, after the alcoholic fermentation is finished. They are then run off and the cap is gently pressed in a pneumatic press. Malolactic fermentation occurs before the wines are blended. Once this is done the final wine is aged (partially in oak barrels) and racked regularly. It is fined and lightly filtered before bottling.
  • Viticulture Harvesting is done by machine and each variety is picked and vinified separately. Once at the winery, the grapes are very carefully destemmed and lightly crushed, before being transferred to stainless steel vats for the alcoholic fermentation.
