Merlot

Red grape variety

Merlot is the most used variety in the Bergeracois area. On cool soils, it gives the wine a deep colour, suppleness and aromas of fleshy red fruits.

The origins of the variety

Merlot actually originates from the South-west of France, more specifically from the North of the Aquitaine region.

Merlot vines are the vines most cultivated in France and were massively exported to North America, Chile, Italy and Central Europe.
