Production

Sourced from the vineyards of Patrick Bech's Domaine de Bahourat in the Gard area of the Languedoc. Vineyards lie on a plateau near Nimes in the Southern Rhône. Yields are kept low and grapes are picked at total ripeness. The Domaine also has an abundance of apricot trees that surround the vineyards which, like the vines, benefit from the terroir and climatic conditions of the region. Micro-oxygenation was adopted to ensure supple tannins for this distinctive and authentic Merlot.

Tasting notes

Deliciously ripe fruit with flavours of prunes, a touch of Earl Grey and bergamont; the tannins supple and the finish is fresh - a characterful, good value red reflecting well the terroir of this domaine.

Food match

Sirloin steak in peppercorn sauce or grilled lamb chops.
