This ancient winery goes by the name Mas d’Oustry which has been in Nathalie Larroque’s family since 1540. Here, Nathalie and Rémi Larroque tend to old varietals such as Prunel’Art, Fer Servadou, Duras, Mauzac and Loin de L'Oeil. The estate makes just 90,000 bottles (10,000 bottles of Gaillac Perlé) and all farming is sustainable, HVE Level 3-Certified. The word “Perlé” indicates a slight prickle – nearly imperceptible bubbles in the wine. It’s bottled when the fermentation is 90% complete, leaving the faintest sensation of a spritz. Pairs gloriously with rich and spicy food or as an aperitif.
