Old and illustrious vineyard just as those of Duras! Bertrand de Goth, Pope Clement V, a wine enthusiast as only he could be, granted its first letters of nobility. It was only when the English harvested in Aquitaine that it set itself apart. François I referred to the wine as ‘nectar’. In 1937, this wine was one of the first to be awarded the highly prestigious A.O.C label.

In the north of the Lot-et-Garonne department, this A.O.C reaches up to the summit and the southern slope of the many hills that shape this beautiful landscape. It has a mild oceanic climate and the ‘fish-filled river’ of the Dropt, provide an ideal thermal regulation.

Delicate, fresh dry white wines owe all their character to Sauvignon and are appreciated for their translucent pale gold colour with soft green reflections.

Semi-sweet wines have complex aromas of acacia and honey and a pure gold appearance.

Red wines are fleshy and fruity making the perfect accompaniment to hearty Gascony cuisine. Some winegrowers age their products in oak barrels. This then enhances the wine, taking on vanilla nuances.
