Meffre Première Nature Merlot

Maison Gabriel Meffre’s Pays d’Oc Première Nature Merlot 2018 is made using no added sulphites. The IGP wine, produced from grapes in the commune of Générac, is grown on well-drained, sandy loam soils. It undergoes a “deliberately short” 10-day fermentation, with daily pumping over. Described as having intense red fruit aromas, it is best enjoyed young with dishes including stuffed mushrooms, charcuterie and lamb chops with thyme. The wine is bottled under the Château Grand Escalion brand, one of Meffre’s estates, which has 44 hectares of vines in the Costières de Nîmes AOC as well as varietally-designated vineyards.

RRP: £14-15.
