Discover the grape variety: Négret castrais
The négret castrais is called mauzac noir. It is in the region of Toulouse that we find this variety doomed to disappear. Its origins are to be found in the Gaillac region, where it reaches maturity during the second period. The plant likes clay-limestone soils. It can be recognized by its late buds. Its bunches have short peduncles bearing compact, truncated cone-shaped loads. They are often winged and loaded with medium-sized berries. The pulp is covered with a thick skin whose colour is more or less red depending on the sun exposure of the bunch. Worms, excoliosis and powdery mildew are the main enemies of this variety. When vinified, Castres Negret gives off a fairly good character from its mauzac stock. The wine gives off notes of vanilla, apple, pear and jasmine. The juice is not very colourful and light in the mouth.
