Domaine le Petit Tambour, Tossut Mauzac 2017

Our opinion : The first interesting thing is on the label of the bottle, giving several indications such as plot, type of soil, altitude and orientation. Then, in the glass, the color is straw yellow. It is accompanied by a very original nose of this grape variety typical of the Limoux region, a touch of ripe apple. It is found in the mouth, but also with saline notes close to the mushroom!

Temperature service : 10 – 12°C

To drink : 2021 – 2022

The Vigneron

Domaine Le Petit Tambour is located in Tourreilles (11300) in the Haute Vallée de l’Aude at the foot of the Pyrenees.

It is a family estate of 30 ha undergoing organic conversion.

The Estate is located just outside the village in a small valley where the vine is king.

The Domaine’s soils are predominantly clayey with the presence of pebbles or silt in some plots and therefore with some more or less compact or light variants. The vines are all close to the cellar to facilitate daily work.

The Appellation

Any wine produced in France that is not accepted by an appellation of protected origin (PDO) or by a protected geographical indication (IGP) is by definition a Vin de France (VDF).

The most frequent reason is the grape variety of the cuvée. Any PDO and IGP has its catalog of authorized grape varieties. Only the culture of these grape varieties in the delimited geographical area give right to the AOC or the IGP. Otherwise, we are a VDF.

Another reason may be the place in which the vine was planted. Producing VDF can be a winemaker’s choice or a winemaker’s choice and can therefore also be synonymous with a qualitative wine production in complete freedom!
