About This Wine:
Rising from the confluence of two great rivers where the land meets the sea, the 2,000-year history of Bordeaux is intertwined with that of its surrounding region — in terms of both geography and spirit.
In 1936, the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine was founded, and its purpose was to enhance the value of French products by improving their quality. Numerous quality-focused guidelines (some would call them restrictions) were enacted to help attain that goal.
Striving to perpetuate the expertise of their ancestors, the new generation of thirty-something Bordeaux winemakers has lent the perfect mix of tradition and modernity to their cuvees. Merlot, which forms the backbone of the 2018 Les Charmes du Roy, is characteristically supple and round, adding plenty of color and the aroma of fleshy red fruits. Its secret is Bordeaux’s cool, moist soil, making it a true “wine of a place.” A very special place.
