2016 Ch du Bergey Cuvée Prestige, Fronsac

Tasting Notes

'Deep garnet with a beautifully pure floral lift of ripe black fruit, the palate is classic Fronsac with ripe Merlot giving dark plum notes supported by a ripe tannic structure and a lovely fresh finish no doubt contributed by the cool soils.  This is made in a approachable style that also has the balance to hold for a further 4 to 5 years in the cellar, but given the inherent balance of this excellent vintage is already drinking beautifully.  Delicious with something roasted on the BBQ or from the oven!' Aidan Bell 

93 points, International wine report
'The 2016 Château du Bergey opens to inviting aromas of dark cherries and blackberries which come together with fresh herbs, dark chocolate, licorice and hints of fresh florals. A full-bodied Fronsac, with a gorgeous plush texture and beautifully polished, well-integrated tannins making for a wonderful mouthfeel. Shows outstanding depth and opulence, with a core of juicy dark fruits that burst on to the long, supple finish. This is an absolutely fantastic showing which already has much to offer' 


Vineyard Information

Château Du Bergey, in the heart of the Fronsac appellation is tucked in between Châteaux Dalem, Haut Carles and Beausejour, and is a hidden jewel on the banks of the ambling Dordogne river.

The microclimate created by the rolling hills of clay and chalk have an effect on the Merlot grapes which gives them refreshing acidity. Plump, soft plummy black fruit flavours, medium to full bodied and a gorgeous satisfying mouthful.
