La Porte des Princes Merlot 2015
Sun-ripened Merlot from a favourite Rhône winemaker - with TWO Gold!
Merlot is the great grape of Saint Emilion and Pomerol, on Bordeaux’s Right Bank, where it produces some of the world’s most sought after wines. These days, it’s a star performer in nearly every wine producing nation across the globe. The one place you wouldn’t expect to find it is the Rhône, where Syrah and Grenache hold sway. Award winning winemaker Thierry Ferlay has shown that, in fact, it works beautifully in his local vineyards, not far from Châteauneuf. He has created a wonderfully soft, silky red with deep plum and cherry fruit and a note of peppery spice thanks to the warmer climate. Great for sipping on its own, it’s the sort of red you should always keep on stand-by for family suppers such as sausages and mash or shepherd’s pie.
