Tell us about your field

Gascon hospitality is far from being a simple expression! To experience it, we invite you to savor the rich flavors of the Gers at Domaine de Polignac. In the town of Gondrin, and close to remarkable historical sites, the Gratian family warmly welcomes you. At the heart of our farm, renovated and surrounded by its vines, we are delighted to introduce you to our family production: Armagnac -Ténarèze, Floc de Gascogne in its white and rosé variants, as well as our Côtes de Gascogne wines .

At Domaine de Polignac we also offer enriching wine tourism experiences, including guided tours, hiking trails through the vineyards and an Escape Game! Take advantage of this ideal opportunity to discover our Floc de Gascogne, in an exceptional environment.

How would you describe your white Floc?

First of all, it is our grape varieties that distinguish our Floc blanc: Gros Manseng, Colombard and Ugi Blanc.

Colombard, with its aromatic finesse and citrus notes, initiates the tasting. Ugni Blanc follows, bringing acidic freshness and floral touches. Gros-Manseng completes this trio by offering roundness and aromas of exotic fruits. Together, they compose Floc Blanc, which seduces with its powerful and complex bouquet, subtly mixing floral and fruity notes. On the palate, it is generous, combining roundness, smoothness and fruity flavors.

How would you describe your Red Floc?

The Floc de Gascogne Rosé is distinguished by its delicious nose which, once aerated, reveals aromas of red fruits. In the mouth, it is soft, supple, and pleasantly sweet, without being heavy. The tasting concludes with a clear and aromatic finish, dominated by notes of blackcurrant, raspberry and blackberry.

Where can you find your Floc?

You can find our flock at the Domaine and in wine merchants.

Do you organize visits to the estate?

We organize visits to the Armagnac cellar and vineyard tours on the estate all year round. Each activity is followed by a tasting of our products and a special time for discussion. Reservations can be made directly or on our website.

What are your projects, your current affairs?

The estate recently hired Fabrice Aubinais with the aim of developing the commercial part with the professional. A big step for the Polignac estate!

From an agricultural point of view, this year in 2024 will be our second year of phytotherapy treatment on our organic vines.

Work on planting hedgerows began at the start of the year.
