St.Emilion along with Pomerol is really the reason behind the world’s obsession with Merlot. Who can blame any prospective vineyard owner having tasted a great Merlot dominated wine from these appellations thinking that planting Merlot must be a sure fire recipe for vinous success. However few have managed to emulate the heights reached by this grape here. At Arnaud de Jacquemeau they make just the one wine and it is a very fine wine at that. Brilliant value.
