Product Details

The Region: Bordeaux

master vintner bordeaux wine If vintners and merchants worked together to custom design the ideal wine region, they would produce Bordeaux. Nestled in a natural crossroads between land, river and sea in the Southwest of France, the mild climate and well-drained soil provide the perfect environment for growing the three big grapes of Bordeaux -- Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.

It’s actually Bordeaux’s unique location that influenced how these grapes came to be made into wine. As a major shipping port since ancient times, Bordeaux was host to the world’s very first trade expositions. And that bred a culture of clever merchants who realized that if the grapes were vinified separately and then ‘assembled’ within a few months of fermentation, they could guarantee a steady supply of wines with consistent character…even in years with challenging weather. Voilà…The complex, engaging character of Bordeaux wines was born!

The Wine: Cherie Merlot

Dry, medium bodied, lush and friendly, this is definitely a cool climate Merlot, with grippier tannins and a more complex earthiness than US or Australian versions. A palate of black cherry, plum and red berries leads to aromas of cocoa and hints of cinnamon-mocha spice. Tempting when young, the cherry-berry notes will show better after six months, and it will age very well for a wine this approachable.
Excellent with dishes featuring rich tomato sauces, Cherie Merlot also goes well with many foods, such as crispy-skin roasted duck, and shows a generous nature with rich stews like Beef Bourguignon.
