2019 Maison Des Jardins Pays d'Oc, France Merlot
Plum-garnet in hue, this fruitful, soft, warm and round red wine provides a delicious taste of France's southern coast region.
About This Wine:
Today, that reputation is being challenged by other wine-growing nations on four continents, and the French wine industry faces new challenges. So the industry has been reinventing itself, producing new wines for a changing world while continuing to provide world-class bottlings produced on estates with perfect conditions and centuries of winegrowing tradition.
But for those who know how to choose, France now also offers something that never before was part of its reputation: good value. And that’s the story of this Merlot, crafted from grapes grown in the southern coastal region of the country.
The 2019 Maison des Jardins Merlot exhibits all of Merlot’s varietal characteristics, but at a fraction of the cost of bottlings from Bordeaux. It may not have the famous appellation printed on the label, but all that really matters is what’s in the glass.
