Chateau Le Gac Chambard, Bergerac Rouge, 2016, 75cl
Awards: Silver Medal, Paris.
Bergerac is a wine region in south-west France, covering an area along the Dordogne river. Bergerac combines all the right conditions for a great vineyard. The warmth of the Aquitaine and the temperate climate of the Dordogne River; the hillsides and plateaux, which provide maximum sunshine and perfect drainage; the poor quality rocky limestone soils that force the vines to work harder. As a result. all these factors produce wines with wonderful flavours and aromas.
The vineyard stretches over the Gravelly hills of the Dordogne valley. The vinification takes place in the most modern cellars of the region where the grapes are not crushed but gently squeezed.
Grape Variety: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: This vintage has a ruby colour. At first, the nose is full of plum and dark berry scents. Then, the aroma is rich with red berry flavours swirling into a lengthy spice and fruity finish.
