We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This 30 year old vineyard is located on the banks of the Dordogne River, on a similar terroir to Saint Emilion, which is only a few miles downstream. Chateau Bérard is located on a geographical break line, and consequently benefits from a wide variety of high quality soil types. The major advantage of this is that the vintage factor is balanced by the soil diversity. This ensures from one year to another greater consistency of the harvest, in comparison with other vineyards planted on one kind of soil.
Another advantage at this estate is that Chateau Bérard produced its first organic crop in 2012, after having meticulously followed the 3 year conversion period. In 2014 an interrow grass cover was sowed for the first time in order to naturally limit unwanted weeds in the vineyards. This will be complimented by an acceleration in high density vine plantation. History shows that the consistency of efforts made in a vineyard bring wines to the full expression of their potential. The switch from traditional agriculture to sustainable growing and finally to organic farming, undoubtedly reflects the increasing focus on quality.
We tasted and very much enjoyed this lovely Bordeaux with its bright, ripe mid-palate, fress
