Dordogne/Bergerac Wine

for this region?

 

Bergerac is a region in southwest France. Mostly Bordeaux varieties are used here, both for red and white wines, though more exotic varieties such as Fer and Merille for red and Ondenc, Chenin Blanc, and Ugni Blanc for white are also used. In addition to these Bordeaux-style dry red and white wines, there is also a confusing web of appellations that produce botrytized sweet wine. Of these, Monbazillac is the best known, but all can represent excellent value, due in large part to their obscurity.

  • Seigneurs de Bergerac Bergerac 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Delightful wine with plenty fruit, aromas and finish. The tannins are smooth and the well blanced acidity leads to a juicy, mouth watering finish. For under $10 this is a steal. 88 points - drink now - Paul Read More

    Binny's 3/2016. I love wine, but I always(?), lots of times, seem to be drinking a cocktail when my lovely wife wants a glass of wine. Open the bottle, she likes it, I drink the last 8/10 oz. two days/weeks later. Should I review it in this poor excuse for a blog/wine tasting notes? No I should not, but that said, this was a very good two week o... Read More

  • Chateau le Fage Monbazillac 1964

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful golden/amber color. Very much a nutty nose with a touch of orange blossom. Charming on the tongue. Creamy, nutty sweetness with a hint of orange tartness at the back of the palate. A fairly rich wine that, more than anything else, reminds me of a low-alcohol sweet vermouth. Read More
