Tour des Gendres | Les Gendres ≪derrière le chai≫
AOC Bergerac Sec (dry white)
From a 3.5 hectare plot on clayey-limestone with a large proportion of limestone from Aquitaine.
All grapes are destalked before being left to macerate for 48 hours. A natural clarification occurs without adding enzymes. The fermentation takes place in 30HL foudres (large oak vats). Filtration is minimal.
Ageing in foudres for 11 months with stirring of the lees
With a pale gold colour, the nose is like a photo of this years’ perfectly ripe vintage. It reveals dried apricots, jammed fruits, a toastiness with beautiful citrus zests bringing the freshness alive. The attack in the mouth is round, with a light touch of sweetness, accompanied by a very aromatic full body and a magnificent long persistence in the mouth. The Moulin des Dames White is a perfect example of an ideal ripeness on a unique terroir. Thanks to its ageing, this is a wine which knows how to wait to be opened.
Food and wine combinations
This wine pairs perfectly with fish in a creamy sauce, poultry, truffles, oriental dishes, blue & goats cheese… Or simply as an aperitif.
