Plagéoles / Tres Cantou
Domaine des Tres Cantou has been in business in Gaillac for 6 generations. In the 1970's Robert Plagéoles took the bold step of uprooting the bland international varieties and replanting with their long lost peers, such as variations of Mauzac amongst Muscadelle and Côt in their 28ha of vineyards in the foothills of the Massif Central Mountains. Soils here are limestone, clay, and marl. Wild yeasts are used to encourage fermentation and no corrective chemicals are being used in the winery, The couple are certified organic.
