As with all wines from this outstanding domaine, the Ginestières Merlot delivers quality and style beyond what you might expect of a Pays d’Oc. With dark cassis and wild herb flavours, this silken gem is a smart alternative to costlier Saint Emilion.

It’s rare to see a French Merlot of this calibre at this price. This is partly explained by its provenance, the Languedoc Roussillon, “the most exciting region in France” (Sunday Times), which also provides much of France’s best value wine. But credit must also go to ‘Merlot maestro’ Claude Gros, who perfected his skills in Saint-Emilion. Among his many successes is a now famous Merlot-rich Grand Cru, Château La Fleur Morange, that scored 96/100 from critic Robert Parker. Claude returned to his southern French roots, and Domaine Ginestières at the heart of the Minervois, where he makes this majestic Merlot at an amazingly down to earth price. Enjoy this Gold-medal winner's fine, dark cherry and wild herb character alongside roast chicken.
