Yvon Mau Merlot IGP 2014 Wine
The Yvon Mau varietals range is a selection of bold, convivial wines with an irresistible balance of fruit and body. They are the fruit of a historic partnership between Yvon Mau and a selection of local winegrowers in the South of France. These partners share the same values which have always inspired us: passion, commitment and quality.
Vin de Pays de l’Aude is a local PGI and one of the Vins de Pays d’Oc. This is a region that sees sharp climate variations between the ocean, the mountains and the sea, producing a wide variety of wines. It also boasts such historic sites as the City of Carcassonne, the Minervois region and the Corbières mountains with ancient rocks that give the wines a characteristic mineral character.
Predominantly clay and silt on the hillsides and valleys of the Aude region.
The healthy, crushed and destemmed harvest is vinified in the traditional manner. Fermentation and maceration take place at a controlled temperature, with maceration for approximately one week.
Ready to drink now, served at room temperature (16°C).
This Merlot boasts an intense red robe with flashes of deep crimson. The nose is elegant and expansive, with prominent red fruit aromas. Supple yet ample on the palate, and undeniably rich.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable Merlot and a perfect partner for red meats, poultry and cheese platters.
