About The Bottle
Made up of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a succulent red.
Merlot is doing most of the heavy lifting when it comes to flavour. The aromas are all plum and cherry, and the same is found in each sip. A healthy amount o oak makes for bright tannins that round things off nicely.
The Cabernet Franc adds lovely pencil notes (that means some mineral flavours that don’t sound right but are actually great) and there are warm spices everywhere.
What Makes It So Grape?
Produced in Bordeaux, France
The Bertin family have been making wine in Bordeaux since 1742. That’s a long time, and you know practice makes perfect. Most of their vineyards are Merlot based, with a smattering of other grapes for complexity and aroma.
The current generations of Bertins aim to produce full bodied, mellow and balances wines, using fresh thinking and ancient tradition to make some very special bottles.
