Terre Des Dames La Dame 2017
A pure and intense red wine – gourmand, fresh, easy to drink. All grapes are handpicked and selected on a sorting table. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah (50/30/20%) – Yields 30hl/ha. A typical Languedoc for its fruit and concentration. Atypical however for its freshness and soft tannins.
Lidewij van Wilgen, a successful marketing executive in The Netherlands, started a new life in 2002 when she moved with her 3 young daughters to become a winemaker in the Languedoc. The vineyards were restored, the wine cellar renovated and the main house rebuilt. Now she is one of the ‘Leading Ladies of Languedoc’ and is highly regarded by Jancis Robinson and many other wine writers. Certified organic principles are applied to both viticulture and vinification, her naturally irrigated 14-hectare vineyard being a mix of clay, limestone, flint and fossilized oyster shells.
