Duc de Berticot Cotes de Duras 1990

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine in an auction [www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/55358] and as I was the only bidder I got it for only one pound. I was pleased as the bottle had obviously been cellared properly with the fill well into the neck. The Cotes de Duras is an AOC established in 1937 [ although wine production in the area goes back many centuries ] for white, red and rose wines produced around the village of that name about 30 miles east of Bordeaux and 20 miles south-west of Bergerac. The grape varieties used are the same as those in the Bordeaux AOC's and the wines tend to be very similar. Berticot is a co-operative making several cuvees of red, white and rose wines representing 120 growers and over half of the appellation's total production. Berticot has a very good reputation as a wine producer winning a gold medal in the prestigious Concours Regional des Vins Aquitaine in 2001. This particular cuvee is a 50/50 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon and is aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my supper of meat pie and I enjoyed it. It was soft. mellow and easy drinking and there was plenty of fruit [blackberries, blackcurrant and plums] there as well. I thought it a quality wine and a pound well spent
