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 »

  • 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

  • Haut Sarthes Montravel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Wine review by Frenzy


  • Emark - nice wines. Monbazillac isn't a region to be sneezed at. It's ... as the place where Cyrano de Bergerac was from. If you ever get a chance, see the movie from the early 1950s with José Ferrer. Ayn Rand of all people wrote a screenplay based on the story of Cyrano but set in WWII. You lucked out that the bottle was in good condition. A ... 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

  • Chateau Belingard Bergerac Rose France Bordeaux Red 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nothing special here for a French rose. Subtle hints of unripe strawberry, a touch of lime and a little bright red cherry. There's some decent acidity but a fairly short finish on a light weight frame. Read More
