Domaine de Brau -
Maceration is closely controlled to ensure the wine is both supple and fruity. Excellent fruit extraction means that this French Merlot is full of gently spiced black fruits. Tannins are well rounded, leaving a soft, easy-drinking wine.
‘Juicy, soft, unoaked Merlot that slips down as easily without food as with. Bags of blackberry and blackcurrant flavours, a chocolaty roundness and some graphite to keep it in touch with its savoury side.’ 86 points, The Wine Gang
