Irresistibly delicious, this wine shows that Merlot can produce super tasty reds in the Vaucluse. This area's proximity to the Med, in the south of the southern Rhône, brings a wealth of sun kissed plummy fruit with a sprinkling of spice and herbs.

Supple with bright plum and forest fruit, liquorice and pepper notes
Fresh forest fruits with a hint of herbal garrigue and liquorice
Vines have been planted in this very southerly part of the Rhône since Roman times. They certainly knew a thing or two about making wine, so it’s safe to bet that this terroir is spot on for great wine! Typically, when you think of the Rhône you think of Syrah and Grenache. But award-winning winemaker Thierry Ferlay has shown that, in fact, Bordeaux's Merlot ripens perfectly in his local vineyards, not far from Châteauneuf. Using old vine fruit for extra intensity, he has created a silky red with plum and blackberry notes with a hint of pepper and liquorice. Easy going and fruity, it makes a delicious glassful on its own as well as a great stand by for mid week suppers from sausages to think shepherd's pie. A top choice for a barbecue too.
"Smooth and rich - a nice all round wine with a great finish"
