- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
A wallet-friendly natural red wine bursting with big boy blackberry notes and hints of black pepper and vanilla. Well structured with sweet tannins and a pretty earthy finish. Is this the most complex, character-full wine on earth, no, is it a great value wine to have in stock for a mid-week glass with a cheeky pizza, yes.
Celliers Jean d'Alibert is based in the La Liviniere area of the Minervois appellation of Languedoc-Roussillon and is among the most ambitious and quality-focused wineries in the south of France. The company brings together 1,500 wine growers spread over 7,000 hectares around Carcassonne and the Minervois - from small village cooperatives to larger domaines and chateaux. As a result the terroir varies greatly from schistous terraces to limestone hillsides, producing in turn an excellent range of wines, all of which bear the d'Alibert hallmark of approachability and value for money. This particular 100% Merlot has bags of blackberry fruit and more than a touch of ripe tannins.
