Merlot

18.00 CHF tax incl.

Merlot, although its origin is probably French, can be considered an international grape because it is also grown in Italy, Switzerland and in many other regions throughout the world. Present in Geneva for several decades, it is particularly well adapted to our climate. It gives tannic wines, but more muted than the Cabernets. Generally quite intensely coloured, it shows beautiful shades of red and purple. Merlot behaves well both to normal vinification in vats or to barrel aging. Our Merlot is aged in oak casks to fully develop its bouquet of complex wood aromas , but also to somewhat mellow the tannins.

Tasting:
Bouquet: Fresh with a mix of red and black fruits.
Palate: The taste is full bodied, with the tannins still very present, especially in young wine.

Accompagnies:
Leg of lamb, grilled pork ribs, beef ribs, wild hare.
