The name is Tardif, it is red and it comes from Gascony.

It disappeared because of the phylloxera but it has now been recovered by one of France’s leading co-operatives, Plaimont Producteurs, that have found a vineyard with vines survived to phylloxera thanks to the sandy soil.

It has been listed again in the official catalogue of permitted varieties in France and the wines might be available by 2020 with spicy and pungent aromas.

We’ll see!
