Merlot is a versatile variety, producing wines that range from delicate and light bodied to big and full. It is one of the most important grapes in France’s Bordeaux blends, and in Australia it is made both as a single varietal wine and in blends, most commonly with Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine is a very typical right-bank Bordeaux blend, composed of 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc Gérard Perse, owner of the renowned Châteaux Pavie, Pavie-Decesse, Monbousquet, and Bellevue Mondotte, has produced a new wine called “Esprit de Pavie” under the Bordeaux appellation. This wine is produced on Bordeaux’s finest terroirs of gravel, clay, and clay-limestone soils situated on the fully south-facing slopes of the Dordogne Valley. Like the other wines in the Perse collection, Esprit de Pavie receives the same care and attention which produces a distinctive level of quality.
