Chateau Poulvere 2010 Bergerac Rouge

There are so many great values coming out of Bergerac yet so many wine drinkers have never explored what this sub-region in South West France has to offer.  I just had the chance to uncork a bottle of Chateau Poulvere 2010 Bergerac Rouge and was impressed with what I tasted.  This blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent choice for mid-week sipping.

Tasting Notes

This red, aromatic Bergerac opens with notes of licorice and berries.  The smooth palate features influences of licorice, strawberry, blueberry, red currant, and dark cherry with a lingering, spicy finish.  A fantastic find for a mere $10 a bottle.  If you haven’t explored wines from Bergerac, I highly suggest you do so!  (13% alcohol)

My Wine Rating – B+

Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with sausage, grilled chicken, or pork…it is a great grilling companion!
