Cabernet franc


   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.
