The three varieties grown at KALIAN are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. They account for 1 hectare. The distribution of these varieties is unique to KALIAN.
The average age of the red vines is 15 years old.
Cabernet Franc is the main variety. It represents about 50% of our Bergerac Rouge blend and brings aromatic complexity, elegance, finesse and a nice fresh finish.
Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are equally represented, each comprising 25% of our Bergerac Rouge blend.
Thanks to the clay-limestone soil, our Merlot is able to perfectly express its personality. The more capricious Cabernet Sauvignon gives the blend colour, rich tannins and exceptional elegance in good years.
