Legendary Wine: Vin du Tsar

Created: Friday, 08 December 2017 Written by Robert Parker

Legend has it that Czar Nicolas II, passing through Lot-et-Garonne, was so taken by the local wine that he bought the entire stock in hand and for several years ahead and gave it his name to boot.

Nowadays Vin du Tsar is widely available direct from the producer, at summer night markets, discerning restaurants and the shelves of Leclerc.

Passing through all of the above locations, Mrs Parker is now making an annual attempt to recreate Czar Nic’s record consumption.

Also available in red. www.vin-du-tsar.fr/

This property is available to buy; walk to village shop, bar, boulangerie, butcher, florist.....cycle to a tasting at ‘le cave’ of Vin du Tsar.
