Textural, plush, harmonious.
As a neighbor of Bordeaux, wine has been planted in the Bergerac region since Roman times. While mostly unheard of, it was once of France's first appellations, formed in 1936.
This Grand Cuvee is a blend of the classics: Cabernet and Merlot, and offers value we often don't think about from its prestigious neighbor.
Sweet smoked cherries are woven with sarsaparilla, rose petals, pipe tobacco and espresso aromas. The palate is as plush and sensual as the nose; it is medium bodied, spicy and fresh, but also textural and trails sooty tannins. A wonderfully balanced wine and offers great value for price.
