In the Gaillac AC, like many in France, grape varieties cannot be named on your labels. So Patrice Lescarret markets his lovely dry Mauzac as ‘Zacmau’ and his peppery Duras as ‘Rasdu’. He is an Ondenc fan too. The dessert whites are top quality and the prices start to climb fast with his rarest and sweetest.

Useful information: Some English spoken at a pinch; small groups welcome by appointment.
