Tasting Notes: Utterly luscious - a cross between barley sugar and orange marmalade. This is a fabulous dessert wine with a well deserved reputation. It's a blend of three grape varieties, Sémillon, Sauvignon and a little Muscadelle. An extremely elegant wine from the home of dessert wines Monbazillac. The naturally occurring sugar results in it being sweet, but not overtly so. It is unctuously luscious with a great backbone of fine acidity for a fresh finish.

Producer Details: At the heart of Périgord, the vineyard of Domaine de Grange Neuve is located on the town of Pomport in front of Bergerac - it covers the sides of the valley of the Dordogne, between 50 and 180 meters altitude. Belonging to the Pichon and Castaing family - the winery has grown from a small farm with just 4 hectares of vines in 1898, to a vineyard of 70 hectares today. Dedicated to making wine that respects tradition whilst not neglecting technological advances that have occurred both in the cultivation of vines and in winemaking techniques, today the property is still run by three generations of this family. The vineyard consists of approximately 26 hectares of red grape vines (Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon), and 44 hectares of white (Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc) - the average age of the vines is 25 years. Each year they attempt to renew 1 to 2 hectares of vines.

In The Vineyard: Vineyards are based in the heart of Perigord, near Bergerac along the valley of the Dordogne river. Here, on the river slopes there is a particular microclimate which creates the botrytis necessary to make this style of sweet wine. Vines average 25 years of age. As for Sauternes, grapes are hand harvested at a very late stage of maturity, in three successive 'triage', to ensure that only the most mature grapes are picked. Grapes are harvested in October and November.

In The Winery: Grapes are gently put into a pneumatic press and the juice is transfered to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine is matured for 24 m.
