Powerful and structured, Merlot is a fruity, smooth wine with a round palate. Delicate, tender and elegant, its colour is bright red and the nose combines aromas of peony and violet. This wine goes perfectly with the taste of oak barrels having accompanied it for more than 18 months.
A cousin of Cabernet, Merlot is a relatively late-maturing variety cultivated in most wine regions. Its soft tannins and violet colour like clay soils at the foot of the hill from which Merlot has developed an exceptional fruitiness.
For more than 18 months, this wine is aged in oak barrels, which gives it good ageing potential.
Merlot fits very well with meats in sauce, cheese and risotto.
