A brilliantly gleaming red-purple colour. Black cherry, blackcurrant and spices on the nose which is distinctly Merlot but in Mediterranean style. In the mouth it is smooth, full-bodied and generous with well-integrated tannins and perfectly balanced fruit aromas such as juicy wild cherry that mingle with ripe herbaceous notes. This Languedoc Merlot succeeds in balancing tradition and modernity by astute blending of this emblematic grape variety.
