Clémence Merlot AOC Genève , , , , , ,

Supple, elegant – Clémence Merlot has a strong character, reinforced by the 10 to 12 months it spends maturing in oak casks. You are seduced first by its intense grenadine red robe, then by its powerful, ripe fruit aromas. The tannins are clean and velvety, with licorice aromas in mouth that are supported by hints of black fruit, mild spices and toasting. We recommend that you let it breath well before serving, to allow the wine to open up fully and express all its power.
