2015 Alain Chabanon «Le Petit Merle Aux Alouettes»
Region: France, Languedoc
Grape Variety: Merlot
Dry full-bodied red | Leg of lamb, well-seasoned!
Grown on stony clay and limestone soil, the Petit Merle sees 5 weeks of maceration, so expect this Merlot to have a fuller body and more broad-shouldered structure with smoother tannins. Enjoy aromas of blackberries and cherries, with some crushed velvets on the palate. To be paired with some great roasted meats and Peking Duck!
