Deep purple with gleaming reflections. The nose is characterised by notes of very ripe black cherry, but also the fragrance of the garrigue and notes of olive tapenade. We are left in no doubt that this is a Merlot, but one that has a distinctly southern character. Deliciously smooth and generous in the mouth with ripe, well integrated tannins, it offers juicy red fruit aromas like wild cherry mingled with Mediterranean spices. This Languedoc Merlot succeeds in conjugating tradition and modernism in this emblematic grape variety.
