The Côtes of Bergerac Moelleux (sweet) AOC is a wine that has become very well known. A few years ago this moelleux was considered a sub-Monbazillac. Now it has acquired it own status with our customers. It is made from the same variety of grapes as Monbazillac but in different proportions of Sémillion and Sauvignon. This moelleux is made using very mature grapes in order to create a very fruity and flavorsome wine. The delicacy of the flavors goes perfectly with Duck or goose Foie Gras perfecting these specialities.
