The 52-hectare Chateau Tour des Gendres was founded 1925 and is situated at Ribagnac near Bergerac. The estate is run along organic and biodynamic lines (certified 2005) by the 3rd generation of the Conti family led by head winemaker, Luc de Conti. The hallmarks of the estate's wines are balance, power and freshness from vines grown on a mixture of limestone and clay soils. No additional sulphites are used and the wines are unfiltered.
Seeing no oak, this is a generous and flavorful red with a smoky acidity.
A dark cherry red in the glass. Aromas of summer red fruits with savoury notes of green pepper. On the palate, sweet and spicy with a generous mouthfeel and fresh acidity.
