Tasting Notes

Dark ruby-red in the glass. Scents of blackberries and violets with a touch of vanilla on the nose. Very smooth and creamy on the palate. Concentrated flavours of black fruits and cherries and a hint of smoke. Really nice long finish. A very elegant and lush wine. Serve with a chargrilled steak, duck liver pate or roast duck with cherries.

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. The award winning 'La Gloire de Mon Pere' is a blend of 53% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc and spends 12 months in oak and 6 months in bottle before release. 

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 3 rd generation of the Conti family led by head winemaker, Luc de Conti.
