    The Plaisir de Merle Grand Plaisir presents a brilliant garnet red with a deep plum-colored core in the glass and treats the nose with an aromatic bouquet of red berries, black mulberries and plums, as well as subtle hints of fragrant cedar and dried herbs. This red wine cuvée in classic Bordeaux style trumps on the palate with remarkable purity and lush richness, ensnaring the senses with delicious flavors of ripe cherries, plums, blueberries and apricots. An immensely generous drop with a pleasant hint of fine spices on the mid palate and taut as well as velvety tannins in the long-lasting finish.

    Treatment in the cellar

    The grapes were hand-picked at optimum ripeness and fermented for 9-11 days in small steel tanks at a regulated temperature of 24°C. During the fermentation process, the juice was regularly pumped over to extract maximum color, tannins and aromas. Once fermentation was complete, the wine spent 3-7 days on the skins before being skimmed off the lees and transferred to barrels where it underwent and completed malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged for 18 months in French barriques with a capacity of 300 liters per barrel. Only the best barrels were blended at the end of aging, after which the cuvée was allowed to age for another six months in third-stocked barriques before being bottled coarsely filtered.
