  • Silver, Guide des Vins Gilbert et Gaillard, 2018

As with all wines from this outstanding domaine, the Ginestières Merlot delivers quality and style beyond what you might expect of a Pays d’Oc. With dark cassis and wild herb flavours, this silken gem is a smart alternative to costlier Saint Emilion.

It’s rare to see a French Merlot of this calibre at this price. This is partly explained by its provenance, the Languedoc Roussillon, “the most exciting region in France” (Sunday Times), which also provides much of France’s best value wine. But credit must also go to ‘Merlot maestro’ Claude Gros, who perfected his skills in Saint Emilion. Among his many successes was a now famous Merlot-rich Grand Cru, Château La Fleur Morange, that scored a stratospheric 96/100 from top wine critic Robert Parker. Having returned to his southern French roots, and Domaine Ginestières, Claude makes this majestic Merlot at an amazingly down to earth price. Enjoy its fine, dark cherry and wild herb character with lamb chops, duck or a vegetable casserole.
