The Languedoc-Roussillon produces beautiful wines and those from the Limoux are legendary. However, the winemaker of Caze Blanque decided to go more west; with the Atlantic at the back, the vines with chardonnay and merlot grapes grow more than excellent here. Especially with the sometimes extreme temperatures of recent years, the Atlantic sea breeze provides better regulation and cooling and good differences between day and night temperatures and this makes the wines of Caze Blanque just a bit more elegant and fresh than many from the areas with more Mediterranean influence.

The Merlot grapes come from a vineyard located on old terraces covered with Collivium clay and limestone. This 100% Merlot has a dark purple color in the glass, with aromas of ripe, red fruit that extend to a complexity on the palate with soft tannins. Due to the good day and night temperatures, this is a red wine that is fruity but has a good balance with its acids and tannins. A delicious enjoy glass and good to combine with stews and barbecues. Also tasty with mature cheese.
