  • Pairing Suggestions Château de Mercuès Grand Vin makes any occasion special. It is an ideal match with refined dishes such as a pasty-covered pot of pollack, chanterelle mushroom tempura, red mullet in a salt crust, and roast breast of duckling.
  • Tasting Notes An extremely well made wine: rich, intense, and subtle, with a great combination of fruit and spice. Very dark red with purplish-red nuances and a nose of red fruit, spice, and vanilla. Very rich on the palate with hints of candied morello cherry and sweet spice underpinned by powerful tannin and elegant, understated oak.

  • Vineyard The vineyard is planted in a superb silty-clay terroir ideal for wine growing. The vines are located on the third terraces of the Cahors valley and its density is extremely high with 6666 vines/ha. On those vineyards, we selected the best rows.
  • Vinification Wines from each plot are kept separate in order to fine tune the final blend and pumping over is done to extract the best possible tannin from the Malbec grape skins. The wine is aged 12 months in cool, dark cellars, partly in new Allier oak barrels.
