We’ve not seen the Merlimont for a while, as it is only made in appropriate years; ‘welcome back’ I say. This has a juicy, plump and chocolatey nose, underpinned by blackcurrant and raspberry. There is mulberry and freshly cracked black pepper, and very fine grippy tannins. This is a spicy, almost old world right bank blend, and one we don’t see too many of around these parts. The flavours are long and fine through the finish, really pulling this experience out to its north. Powder fine and spicy, another exciting and elegant Merlimont release.
Food Match A great match for Osso Bucco
