Origin

This Merlot is designated a Pays d’Oc Protected Geographical Indication wine. The particular character of this wine is derived from its region of origin, the Languedoc, whose climate is predominantly Mediterranean with very hot, dry summers and mild autumns, winters and springs. Selection is a key stage in the production process, providing us with grapes from which we can draw out jammy, as well as crisp, pungent fruity aromas.

Vinification

Made from a blend of wines produced by a traditional fermentation and a thermo-vinification. We are seeking to achieve a balance between fruit and structure, which will bring out the finest expression of the grape variety.
