‘La Gloire de mon Pere’ Bergerac Rouge, Chateau Tours des Gendres
Bergerac is often overlooked in favour of it’s more famous cousin Bordeaux but there is great wine being made there, and you pay a fraction of the price!
Chateau Tour des Gendres is one of the best producers, making wines of real class.
Owner and winemaker Luc de Contoi is a true Vinarchiste, looking for purity and intensity, the maximum expression of the potential of the grapes. In the vineyard the soil is nourished with seaweed and silica treatments to encourage microbial activity.
This vigneron even riddles the grapes on the vine, giving them a quarter turn (at least that’s what he tells us – difficult
to know when you’ve been hoaxed by Luc).
A great wine for roast beef of lamb and perfect with strong hard cheeses; Montgomery Cheddar springs to mind..
