Les Jamelles Merlot Pays d’Oc 2019, France

Merlot from France - Other
Review Date : 18-Oct-2021
Deep, bruised-red with a black core, good transparency, lighter on the rim. The nose is lifting and softly full, penetrating aromas of red cherries, strawberries melded with liquorice and vanilla. Medium-bodied, bright and juicy aromas of strawberries, cherries entwined with vanilla and red liquorice linger to a moderately long finish. Balanced, lively acidity flows with a light grip of tannin extraction, unfolding spices on the linger. This is a juicy red-fruited Merlot possesses vanilla and liquorice spices with a soft tannin grip. Match with pork roast and beef fillet over the next 2-3 years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, a portion of the cuvée aged in 2/3 French and 1/3 American oak. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $25
