Chateau Tour Des Gendres, La Cuvee Des Conti, 2020
Rich, White Peach, Accacia
Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle
Château Tour des Gendres is produced at ‘Les Gendres’ situated at Ribagnac, which has been owned by the de Conti family since 1981. Built over a ‘Gallo-Roman’ site the soil here is very calcareous. Winemaker Luc de Conti runs his 50 hectare organic vineyard on biodynamic lines, growing his grapes as near as possible to the ground and using no fertilisers.
It spends eight months on its lees, with the Muscadelle getting a month in barrel which, taken altogether, makes for a magnificently full flavoured wine. Mouth filling yet with refreshing acidity still, this is a rich, fruity number perfect with trout or salmon, or maybe some fish and chips!
