Merlot's soft plummy fruit character is often used to soften Cabernet Sauvignon in red blends, and is also a delicious single varietal wine.
Fleshy and robust, full of ripe black fruit accented with hints of mocha, smoke and toast. Plenty of fine-grained tannins providing prodigious grip and savoury texture. Best with beef.
Intense aromas of red fruits, accompanied by floral, vanilla and tobacco notes. Has a great feeling of volume in the mouth, with plentiful but super-soft tannins.
Now fully mature, the wine displays a brick-like hue and mellow aromas of leather, pudding spice and leaf tea aromas.
A plump and rounded claret, typical of Pomerol, combining the lush fruit backbone of 70% Merlot with Cabernet Franc's leafy, savoury influence. Maturation in french oak provides spice and polish.
