Merlot is one of the famous three Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Youthful by nature, this medium bodied wine shows blackcurrant and mulberry aromas in the glass. Flavours of chocolate and coffee fill the mouth and give way to a finish of smooth silky tannins. This style of wine is enjoyed by itself, when only a fine red will do.
Match Merlot with grilled tuna, pork and veal or try it with Camembert or Brie cheeses.
