Winemaking brothers – 60 hectares – indigenous grape varieties – modern winery
Chateau Clement Termes
Covering 60 hectares in the Gaillac appellation, Clement-Termes is a relatively large estate run by brothers J-P and Francois David. In a region famed for its deep reds, which in the past were used to boost the colour of paler produce from Bordeaux, the David brothers cultivate dry whites which are renowned all over the region for being of the highest quality.
The winery is extremely modern, manufactured to ensure that all the brothers’ wines maintain freshness for as long as possible. Their Blanc Sec, a blend of Mauzac and l’En de l’El, showcases hints of fresh pear, apple and honey, as well as displaying a herbal, floral element – a perfect partner to light salads and a variety of fish dishes.
