Appellation Contrôlée (AC) Bergerac wine is a classification of wine produced in the Bergerac region of southwestern France. It is a regulated classification system that ensures that the wine meets specific standards and is made according to certain guidelines.
Bergerac wines are made from a blend of grape varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot for reds, and Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle for whites. The grapes used in Bergerac wines are grown in specific vineyard areas of the region, which are known for their unique soil and climatic conditions.
Bergerac wines are similar in style to Bordeaux wines as the region is located just east of Bordeaux. The wines are typically full-bodied with rich, complex flavors and a firm tannin structure. The red wines display aromas of dark fruit such as black currants, blackberries and black cherries, while the white wines are characterized by bright citrus notes and fresh acidity.
