Alot of people don't realise who Christian Moueix is. He is the maker of Petrus which sells for thousands per bottle and Dominus in the hundreds. How offen do you find a value like this from the maker of such prestigous wines around the world.

Taste is very good, but the body is a bit weak... All In all its a good cheap wine that goes well with a good cheap chinese food plate of bourbon chicken...

I would buy this wine again if I understood how reds age, in particular how Merlots age. It tasted a little too tannic for a merlot, and I'm guessing a year or two (?) would bring smoothness to it. I decanted it 2+ hours before we had it, and it was still rough. The nose was clear after 3 hours; with berries and chocolate perceptible with patience. If I had not eaten something with this wine I don't think I would be so exuberant.

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
