SEIGNEURS DE BERGERAC 2011 BERGERAC BLANC

50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon, 10% Muscadelle
The Bergerac wine-growing region, a subregion of South West France, is located around the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne department and comprises 93 communes. Its boundaries correspond more or less with those of the Arrondissement (district) of Bergerac and it is located immediately east of the Bordeaux wine region. The name “Bergerac” apparently comes from the word “Bragayrac”, which is derived from the Gallic word “braca”, meaning “manufacturer of breeches” (the baggy trousers worn by the Gauls). You also may have heard of Cyrano de Bergerac, the famous French dramatist and duelist famed for possessing quite a large proboscis. In this case, with this semi-dry white blend, having Cyrano’s nose would be a definite blessing. The nose on this wine is lovely; beautifully rich spring fruits-- ripe melons, peach syrup and a mixed stone fruit melange-- are joined by scents of lanolin, vanilla cream and a light minerality. The palate is fat and lush but trimmed with appropriate acidity. Delicate flavor nuances of more peach and apricot meld with orange blossom and cream soda, a nice juxtaposition from the nose to mouth. The semi-dry wine has a leaning toward sweetness with the spring fruit flavors but finishes quickly as the acidity clears the palate, leaving a nice reverberation of (again) spring fruit and dewy grass.
