Merlot

IGP Pays d'Oc

A modern approach to wine, associated with French know-how

With this Merlot, Maison Castel combines a modern approach to winemaking with French savoir-faire. Finding the right balance between fruit and structure means the grape variety can fully express itself.

Precise quality management

This Merlot comes from the Pays d'Oc PGI which spans three areas (Aude, Hérault and Gard): its displays aromatic diversity thanks to the characteristics of each terroir. The Mediterranean climate is known for its very hot, dry summers and relatively warmer winters. This wine has plenty of spice and fresh fruit flavour.

Maison Castel know-how

The oenologists select the vineyard parcels according to strict specifications, in order to choose the best quality fruit to make this wine. The grapes are left to ripen on the vine as long as possible, to make a wine with plenty of structure and colour. The saignée technique is used to obtain optimum aromatic concentration appropriate to this grape variety. The Castel oenologists closely monitor the blending of wines made by both traditional vinification and thermo-vinification methods, followed by ageing using a specific wood. This stage is followed by the boisage process which brings out the varietal profile of Merlot, with notes of chocolate, plum and a hint of smoke.
