The Merlot is a wine grape (a variety of grape used for making wines) which is traditionally and widely used in the Bordelais wine area.But it rapidly becomes popular in the south-west and in Languedoc-Roussillon.It also can be found in Italia, in Switzerland, in Chile and also in California.About 115 000 ha of Merlot is growing in France.This grape variety loves soils that are rich in limestone and needs a regular watering, mostly natural watering.The temperate climates with dry days at the end of summer help it to ripen quietly under the sun.

The Merlot grape variety is very often combined with Cabernet-Sauvignon to which it brings roundness.The Pomerol Pétrus is the most expensive varietal wine produced with the Merlot.Its success in France, come from its ability to make a nearly perfect red wine, meaty with supple tannins and fruity taste.Its red and black berries aromas give it a wide variety of taste and aromas. Delices and Gourmandises could not miss it and offers a wide range of wines made with it.

  1. My favorite one 🙂 wonderful taste and great aromas. I ordered the Merlot for thanksgiving with Delices Gourmandises Château Le Vinata though I still have two or three bottles of Château Haut Gravelier I bought three years ago at Delices Gourmandises. Bordeaux wines are exceptional…
