for this region?

Bergerac is a wine region located in the Dordogne department of South-West France. Wines have been produced here since at least Roman times, with many historic ups and downs in production, depending on religious affiliations, trade partners and of course wars and the Phylloxera epidemic. At one time, Bergerac was considered part of Bordeaux, but in the 19th and 20th centuries, the delineations between what was Gironde and what was Dordogne became more defined and Bergerac was given its own identity. Bordeaux is given more prestige, and also denser vine planting (the denser the vine coverage, the more they dig deep to find water and nourishment, resulting in more structured fruit). Though this is not to dismiss Bergerac wines, as many have quite a bit of character and excellent quality for the price. 

Bergerac covers a total 13 AOC titles, which cover red, white, rosé, sweet and sparkling wines. These include Bergerac, Montravel, Haut-Montravel, Côtes de Montravel, Rosette and Saussignac Read more »

    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
