Merlot, Les Classiques 2020
Traditional varietal from the Bordeaux area, Merlot qualities led it to be grown pretty much everywhere in Southern France and beyond as it gained international recognition.
Merlot displays a nice tannic structure, yet round and smooth.
In Ardèche, at an elevation of 400m, it has found a fresh terroir in the Southern Rhône that leads to smooth and fruity profile.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The vineyard is located in the south east of southern Ardèche on the right bank of the Rhône valley.
It is located on clay-limestone, basalt and sandstone soils with the influence of a Mediterranean climate.
The harvest is made at night during the coolest hours, and a short maceration allows to obtain a beautiful deep pink color.
