One of the more recent additions to our stable of producers, Chateau Tour Des Gendres have an estate at Ribagnac, which is part of the Bergerac appellation of South-West France. Founder Luc de Conti set up the estate in 1981 and is incredibly humble about the impressive array of high quality of wines he has to offer. Luc manages 45 hectares of vineyards, and farms according to strict organic and biodynamic principals. ‘Le Classique’ is a wonderfully velvety Merlot and Malbec blend perfect for drinking now.
‘Le Classique’ has an attractive opaque red-purple colour, and instantly brings to mind itense aromas of mint and cassis with some peppery and vanilla notes. Soft and round on the palate with flavours of plums, red cherries and spices backed up by hints of vanilla and chocolate. The long finish is exquisite and fruity.
