- Other Info:
- Located below the castle of Monbazillac, most of Poulveres vineyards cover 104 hectares, 50% of which is Monbazillac AOC, and are grown on clay and silica slopes flowing gently down to Bergerac and the Dordogne valley.
The Borderie family has lived here since Jean Borderie acquired the property in 1923. Nowadays fourth generation Frédéric Borderie runs the estate and is involved in pursuing every aspect of the wine growing and production with loving care.
Monbazillac is sometimes referred to as poor mans Sauternes, and this is not exactly fair. Although it may not have the reputation of that mighty region, it produces wines nearly as richly textured and flavoured, and is much better value!
This scented golden hued wine is a fantastic Sauternes lookalike from just south west of Bergerac. It is soft and sweet but not cloying with flavours of apricot, marmalade and honey. Great with cheese or fruit based desserts.
- "Often overlooked, Monbazillac is an excellent sweet wine with it's own distinct personality due to the inclusion of the Muscadelle grape which adds an intriguing feral note. Chateau Poulvere is undoubtedly one of the very top producers in Bergerac" - Joanna Simon, Author and Wine Journalist.

- Food match:
Pate de Foie Gras is the classic French pairing for this lovely wine from near to the Dordogne area, and this wine is also superb with blue cheese.
