Domaine de Beauregard Bergerac 2009

Member Review by duncan 906:

Back in January 2012 I visited the annual London France Show where Domaine de Beauregard had a stand and I was able to sample their wine before buying a bottle.It is 100% merlot An English couple,Robin and Sasha Ruffles bought this domaine,which has 32 acres under vines, in 2005 and had it transformed to fully organic for the 2009 vintage.I also sampled this wine at the 2011 France Show but did not buy because I thought it a little rough and tannic.However the intervening year of age had made an amazing difference.I drank my bottle at the weekend with my Sunday lunch of roast lamb and it was soft and,fruity with a slightly spicy taste.It is not particularly refined but a good bottle nonetheless
