TASTING NOTES |
A deep red color with aromas of ripe plums, fruitcake and spice. On the palate, Cru Mérigot is soft and rich with flavors of fresh black currant, plum, wild herbs and notes of smoky cedar wood. Classic Bordeaux profile with considerable tannin structure but immediately approachable even in its youth.
