The Chasselas

and its golden grains

A local treasure

The Chasselas de Moissac is no longer just an exceptional table grape. It is now used in fruit juices, carbonated juices, jams and alcoholic beverages. Thus the aperitif “Le Quercy des Iles” was created, composed of Chasselas doré, Martinique rum, flavoured with Tahitian vanilla and sharpened with Espelette pepper. The Emoustilleur is also a must-try, made from Chasselas brandy, excellent to polish off your meal.
