hi guys -

I hope you are all well... Times are tough but there are ways to cope and to keep in touch - Let's make the best of our lockdown and learn about French grape varieties!

We have already had a syrah and chardonnay night in the past, so let's start this time with the lovely merlot.

It is not very common to find 100% merlot wines, but it is not impossible either. I have asked the caviste, Marion, L'apogée du vin to prepare pure varietal merlot bottles you can pick up (price range from 6 euros to Protected content Languedoc and Bordeau regions.
Say you come from Internations/Gabriella.
L'Apogée du Vin Protected content Lesdiguières, Protected content

You can also find bottles (I checked) in the chain shop Nicolas if it is closer to you (insist on pure merlot if you go there).

If you cant make it to any of these shops, but want to join us, some supermarkets have languedoc Merlots too or any bordeaux will do. Even it is very likely that your bottle wont only contain pure merlot, but there will be merlot in it.

It doesnt matter if it is not exactly the same bottle for every one - we will first of all try to reconnect and to relax and most importantly have fun - the rest is bonus :)))

Internations will generate the zoom link for us.

Remember : the idea is not to get drunk and no need to finish your bottle - it will still do for the rest of the weekend :) it might even age into something more interesting :)

hope to see you soon ! :)
