Les Petites Perdrix Merlot Cabernet
Great terroir and four generations of winemaking experience, along with the organic methods used (since 2009), all play their part in making this a very attractive red wine. Rich fruit in good concentration, both soft and lengthy on the palate. Really good new find.
From near the small village of Monestier in Bergerac, southwest France, we are really pleased to have come across this exciting, innovative estate. Here owners Catherine and Guy Cuisset have now been joined by their two sons Gabriel and Julien, whose new talents and enthusiasm helped switch the estate to certified organic in 2009. The wines have a lovely soft texture and easy appeal, and we expect more to be added in the future. The label translates to ‘the young partridges’ often seen sheltering in all the friendly ‘weeds’ growing amongst their vines. Much attention is given here to the soil and to plant biodiversity.
