Appellation

AOC Côtes de Bergerac Red

Terroir

Warm clayey-limestone soils with limestone dominating, on Marl from the Castillon region. These soils are water-poor, southern-facing and on a slight hill. They are particulary good for Cabernet Sauvignon.

Grape varieties

Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot

Vinification

All grapes are destalked before a punch-down.
Long maceration for 30 days with a micro-oxygenation under the cap marc.
The malolactic fermentation occurs in the vat.
Filtration is minimal.

Aging

Ageing in 500 liters barrels and foudres for 12 months, then 6 months in stainless steel vats

Tasting

A deep red colour with violet tints. The nose is very ripe: forest fruits, chocolate, liquorice & violet alongside toasty notes. The mouth gives a generous structure with deep and firm tannins to accompany a lovely sweetness. This wine is lucky to hold a remarkable acidity for the year.

Food and wine combinations

In the Périgord region, we enjoy this with preserved confit or grilled duck on a wood fire alongside all of the delicious mushrooms from our oak forests, such as girolles or cèpes (boletus).
