Tasting Notes:

Rich ruby colour quite sustained. The nose is fruity with aromas of stone fruits.

Same in the mouth and is well balanced in a frank fruity style. A simple wine, very enjoyable and east to drink and very well priced.

 

The Wine:

The Bergerac wine-growing region, a subregion of Southwest France around the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne department, comprises 93 communes. Its boundaries correspond more or less with those of the Arrondissement of Bergerac, immediately east of the Bordeaux wine region. 1,200 winegrowers cultivate an area of 12,000 hectares (30,000 acres). The Bergerac area contains 13 Appellations d'origine contrôlées (AOCs) for red, white (dry, medium-sweet, and sweet) and rosé wines.

The vineyards extend across the southern part of the Dordogne department, the Arrondissement (urban district) of Bergerac. Bergerac soil also features excellent drainage because of its proximity to the Dordogne River.

Approximately fifteen per cent of Bergerac AOC wine is sold outside France mainly to Great Britain, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands.

 

As in the neighbouring wine-growing area of Bordeaux, the cultivation of vines began in this recently created country district of Bergeracois with the arrival of the Romans. Vines occupied a rapidly expanding place in the local economy, the river Dordogne helped to promote the wine trade along its navigable sections. The fall of the Roman Empire had few adverse effects on winegrowing, since the Visigoths, who became the country's new masters, were great wine drinkers.

The arrival of the Saracens and the subsequent Viking raids dealt a severe blow to winegrowing.

 

The Muslims ordered the uprooting of all vines and this, combined with the threat of danger from the northern invaders, caused communities to withdraw into themselves and killed off all trade.

The Bergerac area has produced wines since the thirteenth century and has exported wines since 1254, when it began shipping its vintages to England based on special privileges granted by Henry III of England.

 

Grape Varieties:

 

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabinet Franck and Merlot sometimes supplemented by Côt or, less commonly, by Fer Servadou or Mérille. They are often dark in colour, with full-bodied flavours.
