This is the first creation of François. Merlot is a widely planted varietal in Languedoc and sometimes abused by winemakers as a ‘blending grape’, so François wanted to restore its fame and
reputation. To do that you have to go “Little by little…”
Harvested at optimum times for a lighter alcohol profile & stronger acidity. By using patience & expertise, François produces a wine with smooth tannins & medium alcohol, balanced with a good acidity. Winemaking is an art… Little by little!
Tasting Notes:
Being a Merlot from the South, expect complex black & red fruits to perfume your glass with a hint of black pepper. The palate is full-bodied & indulgent with juicy freshness & soft tannins.
Exploding with red pepper, red fruits & flaming chorizo.
Food Pairing: Grilled meats, duck, spicy dishes or vegetables with paprika sauces & cold cuts (charcuteries). Feel a bit too hot? Pop ut in the fridge for 20 mins and you will feel like you’re having a basket of fresh fruit!
