Notes from the Importer: Domaine de Causse Marines is the domaine of Patrice Lescarret who lives near the tiny village of Vieux just outside Gaillac where he makes beautiful wines using grapes that are indigenous to the region.

If you look at wine lists from any of the top wine bars from The Ten Bells in New York to Coinstot Vino the trendy cave-à-manger in the lovely Passage des Panoramas in Paris you will find the wines of Patrice. The instantly recognizable and humorous wine labels with their irreverent, but obscure, jibes at French bureaucracy may give the impression that they are a jovial lot at Causse Marines – and they are! However, he is also very serious wine makers who is committed to restoring the Gaillac region to its former glory.

The vineyards fall within the appellation of Gaillac which lies a short drive north of the south-west city of Toulouse. The vineyards are tended biodynamically with no pesticides or fungicides or artificial fertilizers used.

He makes the wines naturally and has a wide range of unusual grape varieties to call on including Ondenc, Loin-de-l‘Oeil, Braucol, Duras and Mauzac. He is part of a group of local vignerons who are trying to restore the ancient grape varieties that made the Gaillac wines famous throughout Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
