The perfectly balanced Merlot - fruit and body, still at a nice price, just right. "Touché" indeed.

The Wine

Details

Yet another Merlot blockbuster from Guido Brivio.

A beautiful ruby coloured, perfectly clean and clear wine with wonderful aromas of black fruits and blueberry, caramalised plums, hints of liquorice and a lovely oaked softness from the 12 months in oak. Brivio has a magic ability to create deep reds without any harsh or overly obvious tannins and this is one of those wines. In the mouth the aromas transfer perfectly with a fantastic amount of spice. The softness is tremendous without any trace of flabbiness at all. It is a superb wine. Jancis Robinson refers to Brivio's "Platinum" Merlot as a Pomerol. High, but accurate, praise indeed.

Flo says of the 2012 (Feb 2018): This Swiss merlot is herbaceous and tannic with large red fruit notes, well worth a try!

Serving Suggestions:

16–18°C.

In Depth:

Vinified in the traditional method with a maceration period of 12-14 days at 28- 30°C in stainless-steel tanks. The wine is matured for 12 months in one year-old barriques.

Colour: Intense and deep ruby. Bouquet: Intense and complex, harmonic, with notes of black fruits such as blueberry and blackberry. Roasted hints that remind of liquorice with light spicy nuances. Palate: Smooth and fruity. Fresh, rich and with a good structure. Tannins of perfect quantity and strength. Balanced, harmonic and persistent at the finish.
