The word “pech” means hill in the local dialect. The incomparable taste of Pécharmant comes from the specific soil type, with sand and Périgord gravel underlying the layer of ferruginous clay called “Tran”. Dating back to the 11th century, this is the oldest vineyard region of Bergerac. Recognized as the best wine of the Dordogne, and classed as an AOC since 1936, production totals 15000 hectolitres of red wine from the towns of Bergerac, Creysse and Lembras. Pécharmant is a wine for ageing, with a powerful charm and great aromatic intensity.
