Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This particular blend is mostly Merlot, with Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc making up the balance.
And it is indeed all about the balance with this wine; redcurrant fruit flavours sit happily with spice, oak and a hint of leather.
Makes a perfect partner for stronger flavoured, hard cheeses.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 3 years
Extended product information
If you require further product information, including information about allergens in this wine,
This Merlot-dominated red from the 2006 vintage is a wonderfully balanced wine, with redcurrant flavours integrating effortlessly with spice, oak and a hint of leather. The right bank of the river Garonne is where the Merlot grape is most at home due to its love of clay-based soils. Perfect with hard cheeses.
