AOC Côtes de Bergerac
The name of a parcel of Merlot vines at Château Tour des Gendres. This grape is fond of cool weather, that’s why we prefer to abstain from producing this wine in years when the weather is particularly hot. Les Gendres shows notes of fruit and spices (liquorice) and its ageing period in tuns brings a hint of woody aromas, as well as complexity and length.
