Merlot dominant Bordeaux blend. Chateau Bernachon is in the Entre-deux-Mers region of Bordeaux. Literally translated as ‘between two seas’ the vineyards are planted between the two major rivers that stretch the length of the region, the Garonne and Dordogne. Being so close to the rivers mean that the grapes are planted on soils formed mostly of sand and clay, perfect for Merlot. Its ruby red in the glass with flecks of violet in the light. Think blackberries and vanilla with green herbal notes and good tannin structure from the addition of Cab Franc and Petit Verdot in the blend.
