Les Jamelles Merlot 2016
Les Jamelles Merlot is a very complex, rich, long and fat wine. With its dark colour, it displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries), jam and cooked fruits, as well as smoky scents (peat) and spicy perfumes (cinnamon, thyme). This wine is round, rich and long-lasting on the palate with mature tannins on the finish. It is a well-balanced easy-drinking wine.
Les Jamelles is a unique collection of handcrafted varietal wines that have been produced in the Pays d'Oc, in the South of France, since 1991. Catherine and Laurent Delaunay travelled throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon region for several years to determine which were the best terroirs for each variety and convince growers to work with Les Jamelles to produce characterful, well-balanced, complex wines that express their varietal characteristics. The grapes, grown year upon year by local growers, are vinified on site as close as possible to the vineyards, under the watchful eye of Catherine Delaunay and her winemaking team. The most up-to-date techniques are used, and are adapted to suit the characteristics of each wine and each vintage.
