Seigneurs de Bergerac 2011 Bergerac Sec
Dordogne Valley, France
This wine was part of a value pack from my wine shop up the street. It’s pale yellow. The nose is a well-blended mix of flowers and minerals. Mildly sweet, and tannins play against that sweetness for a nicely balanced body. The lime is perhaps too tart, but it reminds me of the coconut-lime bread pudding I had this evening, and that was delicious. I could see it going well with similar desserts or something with a ginger punch.
The Bergerac Sec is harmless with character from the lime and custard notes. You could swill much worse.

Wine is Life on the 2006 vintage
A light patio pounder. Citrus and pears on the nose. Light taste of the same fruits on the palate with a little spice. Not much of a full flavor. Very light leaning toward the dry side. Not sure I would purchase this again. Not very impressive.
Tammy’s Tastings on the 2005 vintage
It’s one of my favorite wines for keeping around the house — it’s a little bit fruity and just a tiny bit off-dry and goes with every food I’ve ever tried to serve it with.
Feed Me/Drink Me on the 2005 vintage
This white Bergerac hailing from the Dordogne Valley was more robust than a Pinot Grigio but not as sweet as a Riesling. With white grape early and a citrusy tang at the end, this crisp drinker was exactly right for a pre-dinner drink.
