This wine comes from a land full of history. It is produced in the Southern French Languedoc-Roussillon, over four departments along the Mediterranean coast. Here, the northern mountains of the Pyrenees and the Cevennes embrace the vineyards of the Pays d’Oc like an amphitheatre. Thanks to a heritage of over 2600 years of winemaking traditions and a patchwork of climates, reliefs and soils, this region is home to a diversity of extraordinary wines. This specific Merlot comes from various chalky-clay terroirs, as it needs regular watering. Indeed, clay retains and provides water during the summer. The vineyard are also selected according to sun exposure, as Merlot needs enough sunlight to reach full ripeness.
"Dark ruby red, this Merlot displays lovely cassis and raspberry flavours to the nose. The mouth will be slightly spicy with oaky notes and full of fruit. The lingering finish will offer peppery notes." - Winery notes
