Château Monestier la Tour Bergerac Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Coming from old vines, this wine shows complex, floral, fruity flavours, subtly supported by a fleshy structure acquired by barrel ageing. To be enjoyed with roast poultry, fish cooked in sauce, blanquette de veau, fresh goat’s cheese or fruit tarts..." Winemakers' notes "A blend of 50% Semillon, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, and 15% Muscadelle. Stephane Derenoncourt consults here with up-and-coming winemaker Michelle D’Aprix handling the winemaking. Light yellow. Pretty aromas of yellow flowers, lemons, roasted grains, and a hint of vanilla extract. Nearly full-bodied. Quite dry and sappy on the palate, with lush guava flavors that finish nearly sweet. Pairs nice with fish and dry cheeses, this is a great summer white to enjoy poolside..." SWJ 08/12

The origins of the château go back many years. The ancient Capitainerie founded in the 13th century to guard the valley, was partly destroyed during the One Hundred Years War. The next owners eagerly rebuilt it. The remains of the 13th century mingle with elements from the Renaissance period. The façade was rebuilt in the 17th century and the tower in the 19th century, according to Voillet Le Duc. History is just an eternal re-beginning! The vineyard is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec for the red wine; and Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle for the white. The vines are cultivated with the utmost respect for their eco-system. The soil is ploughed so as to favour the natural development of flora and fauna. Adopting a largely hands-off approach to vine-growing, we allow the vines to express themselves so that the grapes can display the whole character of their remarkable terroir. Read less
