The 45 hectare Chateau Tour des Gendres is situated at Ribagnac in the appellation of Bergerac, Southwest France and is run by brothers Luc and Jean de Conti. In addition to the wines of Tour des Gendres, the biodynamic wines of Moulin des Dames are also vinified here, the grapes for these wines coming from 14 hectares of vines planted mainly on limestone and marl. This particular white is a blend of 70% Sauvignon and 30% Semillon aged in Allier oak barrels. The result is a round and buttery wine with beautifully integrated tannins.
Pale gold in the glass. On the nose scents of honey, citrus fruits and quince. A full-bodied and complex palate of peach and apricot with a touch of spice from the oak. Excellent acidity with a firm tannic grip and a long, mineraly finish make this a versatile food wine. Great with roast duck and peaches, foie gras or an endive salad with smoked duck, girolles and cherry tomatoes.
