Vieillefont 2009 is quite a rich wine made from 60% Sémillon, 25% Sauvignon and 15% Muscadelle. The certified organic vines are 50 year old and more. A white that is deep, quite intriguing with a different style. Aromas of citrus and white peaches. Extremely good structure and broad on the palate and a long lingering finish. Would be ideal with a creamy chicken casserole, a roast belly of pork or a smoked mackerel quiche.
Self-made vignerons, Catherine and Jean-Mary Le Bihan are producing hugely satisfying biodynamic wines from Côtes de Duras, an appellation that has spent too long in the dark.
