Discover the grape variety: Merlot

Merlot is a red grape variety with small black berries that appeared at the end of the 18th century. It is produced in most of the Bordeaux terroirs, where it represents 58% of the planted area, and its best terroir is located in Pomerol and Saint-Emilion on cool, clay-limestone soils. At the mythical Château Pétrus, the wine is made with 95% Merlot, with a dark, dense colour, aromas of red and black fruits and a superb range of flavours, the Merlot transforms during its ageing to give way to notes of prunes, undergrowth and spices. On the palate, it is supple with distinguished tannins. It is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot is no longer exclusive to Bordeaux, it is nowadays vinified all over the world.
