2015 Rendez-Vous (Duc De Belmonde) Merlot Cabernet
The Pays d’Oc has a heritage of over 2600 years of wine-growing and winemaking traditions. Along the centuries, the wine trade became more structured and grew rapidly. The region greatly benefits from the Mediterranean climate, bringing warm mist; and the Black Mountain which offers limestone and clay “terroirs” with cool temperatures.
GRAPE VARIETY: 50% Merlot – 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes are fully ripened. They are tasted at every stage of maturation by our winemakers. Immediately following the harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed to retain all the flavors and aromas. A traditional maceration is carried-out in concrete tanks. Finally, the wine is aged in tanks for several months.
WINE MAKER COMMENTS
Premier Rendez-Vous is dark ruby red in color. Its nose is elegant displaying a complex bouquet of blackcurrant, plum and green pepper with subtle vanilla and toffee overtones. On the palate, it is concentrated but velvety with juicy flavors.
Serve at room temperature with spare ribs, grilled vegetable, cheeses, or your favorite pizza.
