Le Prestige - Château les Donats, Bergerac

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This wine from Château les Donats is absolutely delicious and I am really proud to present it to you ! Very typical of the dry white wines from Bergerac, this batch displays nice aromas of citrus fruits and flowers wonderfully enhanced by a strong acidity that gives all this amazing liveliness to the wine. To pair it perfectly, I suggest you serve it with grilled white fish or oysters. 

 

Terroir

Château les Donats’ vines cover 15 hectares on the sides a valley digged throughout the millenniums by the Dordogne River in the heart of Périgord. The plots have various exposures to the sun. This diversity allows choosing just the right exposure for each of the six grapes varieties that are grown in the vineyard.

lecepage Grape variety

Sauvignon blanc in the most common white variety in the Loire Valley and in Bordeaux. It is known to give to the wines liveliness and refreshing aromas. In Bordeaux and Bergerac, it is often blend with sémillon, a very sweet variety, so as to balance its high level of sugar with acidity.

lemillesime Vintage

Historically, Bergerac winemakers have always been ruled out by Bordeaux winemakers who did not want them to access the port. Indeed, Bordeaux feared the competition of this neighbouring wine region (there are only 40km between the two regions) which was located inside the warm land of South-West hence benefiting from a more constant weather guaranteeing much more regularity from a vintage to another. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In 1994, Patrick Somers, heir of a family of Belgian wine merchants and passionate about winemaking, decided to produce his own wine. To do so, he visited a few vineyards, and felt in love with Château les Donats that he bought and entirely renovated. To keep on improving the quality of the wines, he was joined in 2011 by the oenologist Olivier Verhelst who implemented new cultivation techniques and updated the winemaking process.
