Endowed with intense colour, Les Jamelles Merlot is rich, long and round. It boasts flavours of ripe fruit (cherry, wild strawberry), as well as nuances of clafoutis and caramel. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and even cherry tomato may also be detected. The tannins are silky and pleasing on the palate. This well-balanced, easy-drinking Merlot will be a unanimous favourite among your guests! So appealing!
