Late picked Semillon with a little Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc. Unctuously luscious with barley sugar sweetness and wonderfully balancing acidity. Like Sauternes this is perfect with creme brulee, tarte tatin and equally at home with chicken liver parfait and similar dishes. The region is a main producer of foie gras which the French also match with Monbazillac.
The vineyard of Domaine de Grange Neuve is close to the town of Pomport near Bergerac in the heart of Périgord. The vineyards are on the slopes of the valley of the Dordogne at an altitude of between 50 and 180 metres. 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 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 (Sémillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc) - the average age of the vines is 25 years.
