Chateau de Penisseau wine


Here the wine is Bergerac AOP, and the red is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, from vines planted in a limestone rock soil which is warm and produces an early crop and available as oak-aged. Whites and rosés are also produced. Although using Bordeaux-style blends the wines of Bergerac often represent great value for money and some producers make some seriously good wines.
The Chateau de Panisseau is in Thénac, about 20km southwest of Bergerac and 50km east of Saint Emilion, Our preferred Bergerac producer Chateau Grinou is just a couple of kilometres from Thénac at Monestier.

Les Pruniers Buddhist village is a 5-minute drive away.
