Lanzerac, Merlot 2015 [J4]
This appetizing wine has everything a Merlot-lover could want, and more. Concentrated black-berried fruit is edged with sweet vanilla hints and spicy aromas on the nose. Savoury tannins add layers of complexity, gently supporting the flavours of plums, black cherries, cooked strawberries and dark chocolate before a long, integrated finish rounds the wine off in fine style. A truly appetizing and exciting drink, its darkly-concentrated core will match savoury terrines and smoked meats as well as a melt-in-the-mouth carpaccio with a fruity balsamic dressing.
