Jean Bouchard Merlot

100% Merlot

Coastal mountains and hills bordering the Mediterranean coast between the Pyrenees and the Central Massif of France. Complex clay-rich lime soils of the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras, bordered by alluvions.

4 to 8 months, partly in oak casks to mellow the wine, partly in stainless steel vats for the fruit finish.
Very deep and dark ruby-red colour. Its nose is fresh and fruity with aromas of cherry, licorice and sweet spices. Full and generous, it shows good length on the palate.
