BE BORDÔ MERLOT LOVES

BLEND/ASSEMBLAGE

85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

THE SOIL

Be Bordô was born thanks to a rigorous sourcing made by our 15 year experienced team who visited dozens of châteaux before selecting the right one; Château Merlet is to be found not far from the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, in the little village of Cazaugitat which is the highest point in the Gironde (134 meters). Set 45 km south-east of Bordeaux, in the heart of the Entre-deux-Mers region, this 300-hectare vineyard enjoys remarkable exposure to the sun. Its clay limestone soils are ideal for producing supple, fruity, easy-to-drink wines.

VINIFICATION

Traditional culture of the vine and vinification with modern oenological methods. Limitation of the yields, rigorous selection of the harvest and long maceration periods allowing the extraction of the best tannins are the sure guarantee of quality and authenticity in red wines.

TASTING NOTES

Be Bordô range is the result of the winemaking tradition from the famous Port de La Lune, birthplace of the Bordeaux wine business. This medium bodied wine balances intense fruit flavours with delicate aromas. Presented in a fresh, accessible style, our wines honour the Bordeaux heritage while appealing to a new generation of wine lovers.
Enjoy Be Bordo Merlot on its own or with friends. Combines well with pasta or red meats.
