Thank you to everyone for the wonderful suggestions, my family and I had a fantastic two weeks trying wines in Bergerac and Cahors…although to be honest we were rather disappointed with the Malbecs of Cahors, perhaps we like Argentinian Malbec too much but we thought the decent Malbecs were over priced (35 Euros + for a good bottle).
We were pleasantly surprised by the variety in Bergerac and the friendliness of everyone in the vineyards when we came to taste. I thought I would share some of my highlights…
http://www.domaine-anciennecure.fr/fr/ was a great find, we really liked their Pecharmant, both the 2015 and 2009 vintages they had for sale, both were perfect with a BBQ on a sunny evening. In addition their L’abbaye 2015 was a delightful easy drinking wine.
http://www.chateau-jaubertie.com was also a great choice…their Vieilles Vignes was one of the wines we brought back with us; 80% Merlot and 20% Cab Sav a juicy easy drinking wine
We enjoyed our visit to https://www.belingard.com/en/ they have a english speaking tour of their estate and a great range of wines to try after a wonder around the vineyard. I personally liked their Reserve Red, my wife liked their Ortus Monbazillac
http://www.chateaudechambert.com/en/index.html had a rather large restaurant and tasting room, worth the visit for that alone. Our favourite was the liqueur they make from Malbec called Rogomme…17% alcohol.
Another favourite from Cahors was https://www.chateauducedre.com to many wines from here to list as we bought a range of them…the lady who served us was raving about the 2015 vintage, saying it was one of the best they have had in a number of years.
They were the favourites but we visited many more during the two weeks…thanks once again for all the recommendations, without the suggestions we would’ve been a little lost for ideas
