The Bergerac vineyard is crossed from east to west by the Dordogne river and irrigated by its many tributaries. The sweetness of Côtes de Bergerac wine comes from its vineyards planted on sunny plateaux on both banks of the Dordogne. The grapes are picked by hand, when over-ripe, and then sorted to select only the finest berries before vinification. Côtes de Bergerac Moelleux wines are round, subtle and fresh on the palate. They can be enjoyed young but will improve with ageing.
