Château Pech La Calevie
This family estate in the commune of Pomport in the Dordogne, dating back to the 14th century, has been in the hands of the same family since the late 18th century. The terrible toll on the family of two world wars in the 20th century meant that until the 1960s the farm focussed on cereals and cattle to make ends meet, with just 6 hectares under vine.
Denis Tricou, the current owner, and his father expanded the vineyard until they reached the 22 hectares Denis works today, with 16 of those hectares planted to white varieties, sauvignon blanc, semillon, and muscadelle.
From these varieties, with semillon dominating, Denis produces a classic monbazillac sweet wine. Further upstream than Sauternes, but in an excellent spot that is equally susceptible to noble rot, these wines have the advantage of costing considerably less than their more famous counterparts!
