A delicious blend with creamy Sauvignon Blanc spending eight months on the lees and a month in barriques for the Semillon with a splash of Muscadelle on the side. Imagine waxy peaches and sweet cashews with a dash of ginger, cumin and white pepper. This is an excellent French white from the Dordogne. A must with trout or salmon.

A wonderful character and a fine wine-maker, Luc de Conti’s exuberant wines reflect his personality. Luc is a true Vinarchiste, looking for purity and intensity, the maximum expression of the potential of the grapes. In the vineyard the soil is nourished with seaweed and silica treatments to encourage microbial activity. According to him the soil is lifeless (“a cadaver”) and it is a fifteen year process to rid the ground of pollutants. Manual picking and selection of ripe grapes is essential; on the top cuvées there are several tries in the vineyard, and the wine will only be released if it reaches the highest of standards. The blends will also change according to the physiological ripeness of the grapes.
