Chateau Tour des Gendres | BKWine TV

Interview with Francis de Conti owner of the property together with his cousins Luc and Jean de Conti.

Tour des Gendres has 55 hectares of vineyards and is situated in the Appellation Bergerac.

Planted with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon & Franc and Malbec red grape varieties. White grapes are Sauvignon, Semillon and Muscadelle.

They make dry white and red as well as some sweet white wines. Cuvées: Classique to Anthologia, the top cuvee.

Cuvées : Gloire de mon Père, Moulin des Dames, Anthologia

They do a lot of experiments to develop the winemaking, for example: they were an early adopter of fermentation on the lees for the whites; microoxygenation (micro-oxidation), organic (biologique) farming, and now also experiments with biodynamic (to try and give more vigour to some weak parcels).

Language is French.
