Just south of the Dordogne, the Bergerac wine region offers tremendous value red and white wines. This crisp, zesty, fruity white takes 90% Sauvignon Blanc and just fills out the palate with 10% Semillon. The result has to be one of the best everyday, refreshing white wines you'll want in your fridge all the time.

Lowish alcohol at 12% and, thanks to neighbouring Bordeaux stealing the limelight, pretty sharply priced too. There's that classic gooseberry Sauvignon character to make for a go-to at the end of the day, whilst that smidgen of Semillon makes it everso food-friendly. Think shellfish, light pasta dishes, salads, simply cooked chicken.

Long before the Kiwis cottoned on to Sauvignon Blanc, across the Channel there were some top-notch French wines that had mastered the variety. Like this fantastic Bergerac white which is amazingly good value too

The Producer

Bergerac wines have long been a popular choice for wine drinkers, with the proximity to Bordeaux providing similar soil types and climate, with a more sheltered position from the effects of the Atlantic. The Duc de Castellac range includes soft, fruity and versatile red and white wines for easy-going drinking.

The Winemaker

The grapes are harvested and quickly destemmed and crushed to retain freshness and aromatics. Post fermentation the wine is aged on its lees to add body and roundness.

The Region

The region of Bergerac is situated to the south of the Dordogne region, due east of Bordeaux. Its position on the banks of the Dordogne river, with a beautiful landscape of rolling hills with clay-limestone soils offers a more sheltered position than the maritime influenced Bordeaux. Wine styles are noticeably softer and riper, with grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon used to create elegant, easy-drinking styles.
