Sensory profile Getting to know the fundamental archetype of Merlot, one discovers a generous wine, a friendly, empathetic character; jovial, simple and refined. In the Romain 2015 we find Merlot attired in a cloak of unfathomable ruby embellished with a precious garnet trim. The nose floats in a field ripe fruits and fortified vapours, melting in an embrace of sweet spices, lightly toasted. Edgy and enveloping, with an energetic charge in continuous expansion, in one breath its amarena cherries in syrup and boozy plums, in another the endearing charm of vanilla, hazelnut cream, and enduringly, spirals of rum & cherry diffused in a delicate haze of pipe tobacco. Hearts may be broken by the pure scented joy of blackcurrant, rosolio and nigritella. Velvet and silk in all their fullness, it gifts a consistency of food fluidity that both nourishes and satisfies. All that had been promised in the ether is conveyed in tandem with ripe red fruits that ebb to a fortifyingly long finish, reminiscent of bourbon and slivovitz. This noble Romain is a continuous revelation, promising long life for all fellow travellers journeying around the sun!


Pairings A great interpreter when matched with 'meat-based first courses' including roast game, cold cut appetizers & salami, blue & aged cheeses and even spicy dishes, all of which will assist you to appreciate its distinguished identity.
