Standout red of the vintage – launched today for just £10.99 £7.99 a bottle
Southern France produced incredibly rich, warming reds in 2019. But for depth, flavour and value our buyer says his pick of the vintage is “near perfect” Domaine La Domitienne.
It’s a pure Merlot, the great grape of St-Emilion. In sun-baked southern France, Merlot produces a rounder style loaded with juicy, plummy flavour. And this one benefits from the magic touch of a winemaking great.
Hervé Sabardeil is the man behind smash-hit reds like Cabalié and Rex Mundi. He also works at this lovely little domaine on the ancient Via Domitia Roman byway.
At 15% alcohol, this super-smooth, gently spicy red is a wine to sip slowly and really savour. And a star buy at £10.99 £7.99 a bottle.
Cabalié, Rex Mundi ...now Hervé Sabardeil has a juicy Merlot to add to his Big Red CV
