About This Wine:
Bordeaux enjoys the distinction of being the largest appellation in France, which can be attributed to its great diversity of high-quality terroirs. The broad range of wines that it produces will satisfy every wine lover for every occasion.
And the most planted grape variety in Bordeaux is not Cabernet, but Merlot. It’s characteristically supple and round, adding plenty of color and the aroma of fleshy red fruits as well as roasted notes after a few years of aging. Its secret: the region’s cool, moist soil that enables it to best express its full potential.
The name Merlot comes from its resemblance to the blue-black plumage of the blackbird (merle). Past vintages of La Croix d’Argents Merlot have earned gold and silver medals at the L.A. International Wine Competition, and the 2018 vintage appears destined for more acclaim with its palate richness and fresh, bright, youthful character.
