Les Jamelles Merlot Pays d’Oc 2020, France

Merlot from France - Other
Review Date : 17-Oct-2022
Deep ruby-red with moderate transparency, slightly lighter on the edge. The nose is aromatic and gently presented, with aromas of marinated cherry and mulberry melded with vanilla, cocoa and spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of cherry and mulberry entwined with nutmeg, vanilla and milk chocolate. The acidity is lively and fresh; supple tannins extraction leaves a smoothly textured palate. This is a juicy Merlot with bright red fruit and spice with supple tannin extraction. Match with minute steak and roast stuffed capsicum over the next 3+ years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, maceration lasted 2-4 weeks. A portion was oak aged - 2/3 French and 1/3 American and a small portion fermented using thermovinification. Vegan friendly. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Oct 2022 RRP $24.99
