Nice double for Tour des Gendres...

We've never been shy in stating we are absolute fans of Tour des Gendres' Bergerac wines.

So it was a real pleasure to see his 'Cuvée des Contis' recommended by John Wilson in the Irish Times last week-end (incidentally I was myself in Luc's company at Vinisud wine fair in Montpellier at the time and we received the good news together); then this week-end, Mary Dowey recommended his red Bergerac Classique in the Gloss Magazine.
