A cuvée made plot-by-plot from this organic domain, a very aromatic, rich and dense wine boasting a certain tautness. Ideal with poultry or fish with a creamy sauce. More info

The alter ego of Moulin des Dames red is a mineral white wine produced from a predominantly limestone terroir. With each vintage, this minerality has become more marked, underscored by notes of gunflint. The ripeness of the fruit gives a sensation of richness, but there is no sweetness in this wine, which is characterized by aromas of white peaches, citrus fruit and white flowers. The Muscadelle brings a hint of roses and citrus fruit, without the excessive candied flavours that could result in a slight heaviness. The "house" vinification is carried out in barrels with regular stirring followed by aging on the lees for a year, giving the wines body, a rich, dense substance and an extraordinary character, always in a subtle, mellow style. A gastronomic wine.

Bergerac Château Tour des Gendres Moulin des Dames Famille de Conti serve at a temperature of 11°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Carpaccio de Saint-Jacques, Poularde truffée, Plats sucrés salés.

Information about domain Château Tour des Gendres

The family-owned château Tour des Gendres is located in Ribagnac, in the South-West (Bergerac appellation). The domain's history goes back to 1925, when the Vincenzo de Conti family (from Italy) settled in the Périgord to set up a family farm. In the early 1980s, third generation Conti family members moved to Ribagnac to establish a small farm and wine-growing holding. The domain's name comes from the château's owner during the early 20th century, Monsieur de Peyronny, who was none other than the Marquis de Foucault de Lardimalie's nephew. The 55-hectare organic vineyard (certification was obtained in 2005) is managed by Luc de Conti. This domaine is undoubtedly one of the best signatures in this wine-making region, something that's not lost on wine critics and those in the know! To meet the growing demand for their wines, in 2000, the Conti family began to buy in grapes from five neighbouring domains. Luc takes care of the vines and the wine-making, with the help of his cousin Francis. The domain has three vineyards: les Gendres, le Grand Caillou and Saint-Julien d'Eymet. Having decided to replant the Bergerac appellation's forgotten grape varieties (small-berried Muscadelle and Malbec, for instance), they're bringing a new breath of life to this great wine farm.
