«Let's start with the red wines…
There is AOC Bergerac red :
Then, Côtes de Bergerac red:
The very distinctive flavour of Pécharmant, an appellation uniquely for red wine, is its soil that contains a deep layer of clay and ironstone. This is a charming, powerful wine with an intense aroma.
Finally, the youngest of the AOCs of Bergerac, the AOC Montravel:
Montravel is a sumptuous red wine with very strict production conditions.
