Product Description

A  complex beautifully balanced and satisfying red wine from one of Bergeracs renowned producers Luc De Conti. In recent years the vineyard has been converted to biodynamic methods and received many awards (including for this wine, one star in the Guide Hachette)

Terroir: The soil is clayey and calcareous with a high proportion of Aquitaine Limestone

Grapes: 60% Merlot, 40 % Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine making: - Total de-stalking

  • Long fermenting with micro oxygenation "under pomace" during 40 days
  • Maturing in oak barrels, 50% of the quantity in new barrels and 50% in 1-year old barrels, during 15 months
  • Preservation "sur lies" (on the lees) in the barrels with stirring of the lees
  • No filtering
  • No fining

Our tasting notes: This wine is a deep red colour, with a very ripe, intense nose.
Aromas of liquorice, mint and blackberries mingle with discreet oaky notes.
The palate is supple, elegant with delicate tannins and perfectly balanced.

Wine Enthusiast, Roger Voss, Dec 2010: By softening the extract and reducing the use of wood, Luc de Conti has succeeded in making a smooth, elegant wine in a difficult year.  89/100

Alcohol:12.5%

It is a superb tasty wine that goes well with game, duck, stews and cheese. It is
much better when decanted for a couple of hours in a carafe, and will begin to mature some 6 years after being bottled.

In the 2014 Taste of the Tour Gabriel Gaté went to the Bergerac Region and cooked this fantastic duck recipe which would be perfect with this wine...
