J.Moreau & Fils - Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750ML

Varietal 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

OriginBoth of these varietals originate from the Bordeaux region, Cabernet Sauvignon is the leading French noble varietal, known for its high tannins and the structure it lends to the wines made with it. As for Merlot, though it was long considered a secondary varietal, today it is very much sought after for the fruit and softness it lends to blended wines. Both are being cultivated more and more in southern France (in the Aude, Hérault, Gard, and Pyrénées Orientales departments). 

The Languedoc region, on the plateaus surrounding the town of Carcassonne.

Vinification and maturing

- harvested at optimum maturity

- the grapes were de-stemmed and crushed

- the press juices and the free-run juices were separated

- the pomace was left in the must for one week of fermentation

- pumping-over of the must

- temperatures were maintained at 28°C

- some of the press wine was added during final blending. 

Tasting notes

Purple in colour.

Concentrated, fruity nose aromas reminiscent of the Mediterranean, such as black olive, herbes de Provence, and cooked bell pepper.

Fruity and spicy on the palate with flavours of tapenade and herbes de Provence, echoing the nose. 

Food and wine pairing

Enjoy with grilled meats, spaghetti, or slightly spicy dishes.
