Baron de la Ville Merlot 2019
Merlot is the top grape variety for the right bank of Bordeaux, making the delicious wines of St-Emilion and Pomerol. Also widely popular in Calfornia (and the rest of the world), tt's ideal as a blending agent or as a single varietal.
Until the 1980s the wines of Languedoc-Roussillon were mostly rustic, roasted, and dirt-cheap--of little interest to export markets. But wine production in this sun-drenched, crescent-shaped region hugging the Mediterranean from the Rhone delta to the Spanish border has undergone a sea change in recent years.
