Review of Domaine de l'Ancienne Cure Bergerac Rouge (L'abbaye Range) 2008

Hot on the heels of wine of the week in Sydney Morning Herald for Chateau Saint Go Saint Mont 2007 on October 4th 2011 By Huon Hooke, comes another review of one of the wines from DiscoverVin. This time for the Domaine de l'Ancienne Cure Bergerac Rouge 2008


We were thrilled to receive this review by well-known wine writer Winsor Dobbin.

A complex but elegant red wine. It is typical of the good value wines that DiscoverVin is bringing to wine lovers in Australia. 

Here is the review from Winsor Dobbin....

"Yet another well priced import from the south-west of France from the team at DiscoverVin who seem to have the knack of sniffing out bargains. This one comes from a family-run domaine at Colombier, outside of Bergerac, and is made very much made in Bordeaux style with a blend of merlot, cabernet suavignon and cabernet franc and just a soupcon of malbec. At just 12.5% it is the antithesis in style of bold South Australian red but does not lack in ripeness or flavours, simply offering a more elegant, food friendly style of drinking with some impressive complexity and spice."
