Moulin de Gassac - Merlot - Red Wine - 2016 - 750 ml
Round and harmonious, this 100% Merlot shows all the appealing traits that makes this grape so brilliant. Bright aromas of red berries and sweet spice, with a juicy, fruity wash of plum, beetroot and mint. Great value, and a perfect midweek treat.
Drink on its own or with pizza, pork chops, spare ribs or premium sausage.
Variously described as â€œLafite in the Languedocâ€ (Gault & Millau), â€œthe only Grand Cru of the Midiâ€ (Hugh Johnson) and â€œexceptionalâ€ (Robert Parker), Mas de Daumas Gassac has consistently been the Languedoc gold standard for the past four decades. The 80-hectare, organically-farmed estate is located deep in the sultry Midi, but enjoys a temperate microclimate as a result of altitude, which gives the wines a lovely deftness of touch.
Pays d'HÃ©rault is a productive IGP (Indication GÃ©ographique ProtÃ©gÃ©e) in Languedoc-Roussillon that focuses on mostly red wine. The area also grows grapes - both local and imported from other regions - for appellation-level wines like Minervois and Faugeres.
