Merlot, the top shot from Bordeaux, is popular all over the world. In Switzerland, the grape variety first spread in Ticino, and later on this side of the Alpine chain, including Lake Zurich. The variety presents certain agronomic challenges, but is developing wonderfully in our country. The aging, with two years of aging in barriques followed by one and a half years in bottle, provides an indescribable expression and character. On the nose, fruit components and a spiciness come together to create a long-lasting firework of flavors on the palate. A wine that is still waiting for its peak.
