Profiting from the ripe 2009 vintage, this full, elegant wine has a dense, concentrated texture. Named in memory of winemaker Luc de Conti’s father, this is packed with stylish blackberry fruit and ripe tannins. Age for at least four years.
A warm, beautifully balanced wine, with a fine weight of black fruits, juicy acidity, all rounded with tannins and some wood. This ageworthy wine is concentrated while remaining poised and elegant.
It may be one of the less expensive wines in Luc de Conti’s impressive range of wines, but this exhibits all the meticulousness that has made him the most renowned producer in Bergerac. The tannins are firm, but have a velvet layer to them, the fruit is dense, full of black plums with a hint of currants.
Biodynamically run, Château Tour des Gendres is at the top of the tree in Bergerac. This beautifully fruity wine shows freshness as well as depth of tannins, complex berry and bitter chocolate flavors. It is firm, but as a sign of the vintage, has a light character with final freshness.
