A fantastic pair of wines from one of our favourite Vineyards
Merlot: A beautifully put together wine whose grapes come from 30 year old vines. This is juicy with a nice round and dark plummy or bramble fruit mouth, the wine is kept in barrels for several months to add further depth and structure, this is a simple wine with more depth than a regular Southern French Merlot.
Viognier: A complex, explosive and fragrant nose. Lovely flavours of apricot, peach and acacia blossom give way to an elegance and freshness balancing perfectly the richness of this grape with fantastic memorable lingering finish. The meticulous winemakers at Chateau Prieure des Mourgues, owners of Domaine des Aspes, are particularly skilled at working with this variety. The potential quality of Viognier is also highly dependent on viticultural practices and climate which is perfect in the southern French vineyards of Domaine des Aspes.
