Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark ruby color introduces a fresh nose of blackcurrant with minty and spicy notes. The palate is balanced, bold, winy, big, round and tasty. The wine is characterized by coated and tasty tannins. Nice freshness.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Bergerac wines used to be sold as Bordeaux wines prior to the selection of Gironde as the only department that could use the Bordeaux appellation.
Domain and appellation
Established on both sides of the Dordogne river, the Bergerac vineyard spreads across 13,000 hectares of vines and 93 villages. This regional appellation is comprised of 13 sub-appellations.
- Terroir: Overlooking the Dordogne Valley, the vines lay on lacustrine and marine limestone, boulbène, sands, clays and silts soils.
- Viticulture: Bordeaux grape varieties are dominant.
- Vinification: The region produces as much red wines as white wines, both in Bordeaux blends. Those wines result from the collaboration between the maison Nicolas and local wine cellars, which are selected for their abilities to enhance their surrounding terroirs.
