Château Cap de Merle

A lush, round, balanced wine with notes of dark fruit, plums, and chocolate. A silky mouthfeel, generous but not overwhelming tannins and a long, dark finish with notes of espresso, chocolate and anise. An elegant wine to enjoy.

About the Winery

Château Cap de Merle is a delicious St-Emilion that represents excellent value. The owners and winemakers, brothers Alain and Jean-Marie Bel, use no wood in vinifying Cap de Merle so its pure, rich and savoury Merlot fruit comes through directly upon tasting. The winery’s excellent plateau vineyard on sandstone soil assures optimal ripeness of fruit and supple tannins.

2012 is a superb vintage at Cap de Merle. It saw the continuation of the advances in the Bel’s winemaking, aimed at making Cap de Merle even more deeply coloured, fresh and richly-textured
