Winemaker's notes:
Since Antiquity, Merlot has been grown in the Gironde and Languedoc Roussillon where it has become increasingly popular. In fact, it is here that Merlot finds the conditions most favourable to higher quality. The surface area planted in the French vineyards is now in excess of 100,000 hectares, approximately 70,000 of
which are in the Bordelais and the South-west and approximately 30,000 in Languedoc Roussillon, from where this Merlot Vin de Pays d'Oc comes.
Also, the Pyrenean foothills (Upper Aude Valley) enjoy a quite exceptional geographical situation in which the excesses of the Mediterranean climate are tempered by the barrier of the High Corbières to the East, while a slight Atlantic influence is filtered by the hills in the West. The Upper Valley is cooler due to its height (300~600 metres) and is an ideal “terroir” for wines made with Merlot for laying down.
We should also mention the Massif de la Malepère, a real balcony in Western Aude, which offers a magnificent view over Carcassonne, the Laugarais plain, the Razès hills and the Corbières. At the heart of La Malepère is a superb patchwork of vineyards, fields and oak woods that give the Massif harmonious touches of A cherry red colour with plum-coloured tints, this wine has a harmonious nose that reveals kirsch and red berry aromas. Full-bodied and aromatic, with fine, fruity
tannins. A pleasing wine that won’t disappoint, even after it has just been opened.
Young, well-balanced and made with very typical grapes. It will gain in length and smoothness as it ages.

If I spend twice as much will it be twice as good?
From the Reading Room
Yes ... no ... well, sometimes. A 6 (euro, pound, leva - doesn't matter) bottle of wine may well be twice as good as a 3 bottle ... and a 12 bottle twice as good as a 6 one. Over and above this level though the value for money becomes more subjective. To a degree, you're paying a premium for ...

Много приятен малинов цвят. В носа ароматът е направо бомбастично малинов - до голяма степен това вино прилича на божоле, което обикновено демонстрира същите аромати. Едно нещо, което никак не ми допада обаче и в носа и в устата е силният "удар" на дъб.

В устата виното се усеща много приятно - киселинността е приятна, а танините са леко щипещи. Като цяло балансът е приятен, но алкохолът ми идва малко силен като усещане - въпреки че на етикета пише 13,5%, мисля че е поне с половин градус повече.

Простичко и лесно за пиене вино, което показва потенциалът, който френските регионални вина (vin de pays) крият. Някои дребни слабости (силният дъб, алкохолното усещане) го лишават от иначе заслужено висока оценка.
