Jean Leon - 3055 Merlot 2012Spiced Notes
Intense red colour with bluish hints.
On the nose its fine notes of ripe jammy-red fruit stand out, over a smooth toasted and spiced background, resulting from the short time it spent in the barrel.
It has a potent entry into the mouth, with spiced notes, and once again a hint of jam, culminating in a long, elegant finish.
Its smooth tannins lend it a versatility that enhances both fish and meat dishes.
Excellent with cod and especially with ratatouille, but also with meat dishes, such as Spanish pork sirloin.
It is also a perfect accompaniment for delicatessen meats and creamy cheeses.
