Equilibre Merlot Cabernet 2013 - Domaine de l’Arjolle, Côte de Thongue

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Equilibre means balance in French, a perfectly chosen name for this blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon. This very elegant wine is perfectly balanced between the warmness and alcohol of the merlot and the tannic structure and acidity of the cabernet sauvignon. The whole is enhanced by nice aromas of red berries and vanilla. This wine will bring you a lot of pleasure ! 

 

Terroir

The vines are planted on sandy soils with a lot of different sediments brought throughout the milleniums by the neighboring sea. Thus, the ground is full of various nutrients used by the grapes to nourish themselves and grow. That variety of nutrients gives rich and complex wines.

lecepage Grape variety

Merlot got famous in Bordeaux where it is the king variety of the right bank, notably in Pomerol where it is largely predominant. However, over the last 60 years, merlot has been more and more planted in Languedoc as the winemakers were shifting from producing a high quantity of bad wine to a small quantity of more qualitative wine. It gives warmth to the wine and soften the potentially harsh tannins of cabernet sauvignon

lemillesime Vintage

The winter was so cold and rainy that the grapes reached full ripeness several weeks later than usual. Thus, the harvest took place between the end of September and the beginning of October, which is pretty unusual for the Languedoc region ! But winemakers were rewarded as this late ripeness gave wines with more freshness than usual. Equilibre is a perfect example of this phenomenon ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Domaine Gustave Domaine de l’Arjolle is renowned in Languedoc for being especially innovative. The brothers Prosper et Louis-Marie Teisserenc fear nothing and were for example the first to try growing zinfandel in the 1980’s as it was just brought back from Australia. Nowadays, they have been joined by their sons and they continue to grow together the family estate.
