Merlot is the bestselling red wine in the "Les Jamelles" range. Round and fruity, yet complex and elegant, this is a "must-have" wine that goes well with all styles of food.

 

TASTING NOTES: - Appearance: Dark colour. This wine is very complex, rich, long and fat.
 

 

NOSE: It displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries), jam and cooked fruits, as well as smoky scents (peat) and spicy perfumes (cinnamon, thyme).
 

 

TASTING NOTES: This wine is round, rich and long-lasting on the palate ("velvety") with mature tannins on the finish. It is an attractive, well-balanced, easy-drinking wine. It can be laid down for 2 to 3 years.

 

FOOD PAIRING:  The recommended serving temperature is 17 - 18°C.
It is a perfect match for traditional dishes or spicy food: stuffed tomatoes, lentils with salt pork, steak, chicken with ratatouille.
