Grande Maison Cuvee Antoinette AC (Bergerac)
A wine that's been nudging our list for several years and which has finally proved too tempting to exclude. The south-facing vineyard is planted with a high density of vines and, although not certified as such, is largely tended according to biodynamical principles. Only fully mature grapes are selected, and after fermentation the wine is barrel-aged for 18 months before bottling, unrefined and unfiltered. An intense wine, with a full and fruity approach, a delicate, silky texture and a long, persistent finish.
Grape varieties: Merlot/Cabernet
