Description

Organically grown Merlot from vines aged between 40 and 50 years old. Gradual and gentle extraction to obtain delicate tannins, 6 months aging in concrete tank on its lees.

This is the first creation of François. Merlot is a widely planted varietal in Languedoc & sometimes abused by winemakers as a ‘blending grape’, so François wanted to restore its fame & reputation. To do that you have to go “Little by little…” The palate is indulgent with juicy freshness & soft tannins. Exploding with red pepper & red fruits.

Grilled meats, duck, spicy dishes or vegetables with paprika sauces & cold cuts (charcuteries). Feel a bit too hot? Pop it in the fridge for 20 mins & you will feel like you’re having a basket of fresh fruit!
