50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Malbec. 

Beautiful glossy blackcurrant appearance, the nose is intense, packed with the ripest of bramble fruits, a mingling of spices, nutmeg, cedary notes, plus hints of black olive and garrigue herbs. The palate is all plum and blackberry coulis, subtle spice, an abundance of bright fresh acidity which balances the concentrated fruit perfectly, tannins are firm and a touch grippy but not astringent. Very accomplished.

This new cuvée, Cantalouette, replaces Cuvée des Contis Rouge, which replaced Bergerac Classique last year... You do have to bare with these Artisan Vignerons sometimes. :) 

The grapes come from Tour des Gendres organic certified own vineyards. The grapes are Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, grown on a mix of sand, clay and limestone soils. As with all of Luc's wine, this cuvée has been delicately put together, one can sense the perfectly ripe and healthy fruit, gentle and soft extraction resulting in a pure and perfectly balanced wine.

The 52-hectare Chateau Tour des Gendres was founded 1925 and is situated at Ribagnac near Bergerac. The estate is run along organic and biodynamic lines (certified 2005) by the 3 rd generation of the Conti family led by head winemaker, Luc de Conti. The hallmarks of the estate's wines are balance, power and freshness from vines grown on a mixture of limestone and clay soils. No additional sulphites are used and the wines are unfiltered. Very approachable, this is best served with flavourful food.
