The Medeville family runs this exceptional Domaine in the Cadillac region of Bordeaux. Olivier Medeville is an experienced winemaker with an international pedigree. His aim is to make modern, fruit-driven wines that represent excellent value for money.
The grapes are hand-picked at different stages of maturity from the 40 year old vines, where noble rot, or botrytis, was allowed to develop. The vines are grown in alluvial soils.
The three varieties were vinified separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit. Ageing also took place in tank to retain freshness and the aromatic profile, lasting for 12 months, before blending took place. The wine was then aged in bottle for eight to 12 months.
Concentrated apricot, honeycomb and floral aromas lead to an unctuous palate, full of peaches and honey balanced by a refreshing palate. This is a wonderful all-round dessert wine that’s great value for money and almost identical in style to it’s neighbours in Sauternes and Barsac.
Semillon 90%, Muscadelle 5%, Sauvignon Blanc 5%.
