This irresistible, fresh fruit red shows that Merlot can produce super tasty reds in the Vaucluse, too. The area lies on the most southerly edge of the Rhône, near to the Med, and oozes with bright, sun-kissed plum fruit and a helping of herby spice.

We all love Merlot - the great grape of Saint Emilion and Pomerol, on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. There it produces some of the world’s most sought after wines. These days, it’s a star performer in nearly every wine producing nation across the globe. The one place you wouldn’t expect to find it is the Rhône, where Syrah and Grenache hold sway. Award winning winemaker Thierry Ferlay has shown that, in fact, it works beautifully in his local vineyards, not far from Châteauneuf. He has created a soft, silky red with deep plum and forest fruit and a note of peppery spice thanks to the warmer climate. Great for sipping on its own, it’s the sort of red you should always keep on stand-by for family suppers such as sausages, pasta or shepherd’s pie.

"An easy going Rhône tinged Merlot to enjoy with or without food. Supple, ripe with juicy fruit" Jehan Sacaze
