Wine Despagne, Éclat de Merlot Bordeaux, 2018
This A-typical Bordeaux wine is made from 100% Merlot and represents how powerful the region's wines are. The wine has everything one would expect from a good Bordeaux: acidity, tannin, body, and ageability.
Red - This wine is predominantly red fruit notes and is considered considerably more easy-drinking than most Bordeaux reds.
On the nose and the palate, you can expect notes of strawberry, plum, and even white fruits, like peach. The wine is well balanced with both acidity and tannin.
The red wine is ideal for game meat, like venison, deer, or veal. Considering its lightness, the wine also works with BBQ chicken.
The vineyards are comprised of several soil types, predominantly limestone, chalk, and clay. These vineyards are spread over 80km.
