The 21ha of vineyards located at the western extremity of Bergerac straddle three villages and two appellations, Bergerac and Montravel. Gaëlle Reynou-Gravier is the fifth generation to take the reins of Domaine de Perreau, and while she has a lot of respect for the work of previous generations, she has intent on putting her stamp on the family property.

From a very young age she knew that she wanted to take over from her father, so with her agronomist diploma in pocket, she travelled the world making wine and gaining valuable experience abroad. She came back in 2013 and her first major input was to steer the domaine towards an eco-friendly approach, obtaining the organic certification a few years later.

Her wines are franc and digest, brilliant value and a true reflection of herself and her terroir.

Montravel is a tiny area in the hills north of the Dordogne providing Bergerac’s finest whites. An interesting blend – sauvignon provides a tangy fruit, but the addition of sémillon gives an extra structure with a dash of honey on the palate. Excellent value for money.
