CHÂTEAU TOUR DES GENDRES 'LA GLOIRE DE MON PÈRE' CÔTES DE BERGERAC, FRANCE 2018
Varietals: Malbec and Merlot
Region: Cotes de Bergerac, France
What's So Special: A red blend from the Bergerac region and made from Malbec and Merlot in roughly equal parts. The grapes are destemmed and the vines are planted in soils that are dominated by the trio of sand, clay and limestone. Unoaked.
Tastes Like: Blackcurrant, blackberry, vanilla, pepper, licorice and menthol dominate. Due to it's unoaked nature, this one needs some time to truly relax in the bottle.
What the Pros Say: Wine Enthusiast - 91 Points: "This is a powerful wine, rich in tannins as well as blackberry fruits. With a good proportion of Malbec in the blend, the wine is dark in color and in tannin intensity. It needs plenty of aging and should not be drunk before 2023. Organic."
