The Dubard Family is for more than 30 years, the most famous producers of refreshing and reasonably priced wines in South-West France. The family members offer differing personalities of graduate oenologists, wine makers and viticulturists who together make up a dynamic and passionate team that has been renowned in the Bergerac wine region for decades. Being receptive to their terroir, combining common sense and long experience with ceaseless wine-making and viticulture: these are the founding principles on which the family has relied in their exceptionnel cuvées. They are also ongoing on the environmental label "HVE" (High Environmental Value).
The grapes are selected at the heart of the South-West quarter of France, East of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Dordogne river. The vines extend over areas mainly made up of chalky-limestone hillsides and gravelly limestone plateaux – largely south facing, providing excellent terrain for the production of dry quality wines. A thorough control of the sanitary state of grapes and the application of the integrated farming principles lead to the optimization of maturity and a quality of harvest. Varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, rich in varietal aromas, are truly made in the vineyard. Clean and ripe fruit always produce here great Sauvignon Blanc.
The grapes are night-picked, to avoid the heat of end-of-Summer days. At their arrival in the cellar, the grapes are de-stemmed and introduced to stainless tanks, to undergo a 12-hour cold maceration for skin contact. Varietal aromas are mostly extracted at this stage. The grapes are then gently pressed, and the juice settles for two days before being racked. The juice is cooly and slowly fermented for about 3 weeks, using yeasts which complement and enhance the fruit characters. After maturation, the wine was lightly fined and several tanks were blended.
