2020 Château Calabre Bergerac Rouge
Bergerac is not far from Bordeaux – actually, it’s about an hour and a half east of Saint-Émilion. Since it’s located further away from the ocean, one typically finds the same grapes/blends that are used in making the wines on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. 60% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cab Franc and Cab Sauvignon make up this medium-bodied, bistro quaffer.
There’s no oak involved here, so what you get is pure, juicy red and purple fruit. There is a lively feel to the wine, as its freshness keeps the fruity flavors alive through to the finish. The handy screwcap enclosure makes it easy to tote around to parties and small gatherings. This is perhaps the most outstanding cab value we have ever sold. Dynamite!
