Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 29 August, 2019

The municipal appellation is the northern part of the Graves area(Bordeaux) and is named after the two most important towns. It covers 1,300 hectares of vineyards in the communes of Cadaujac, Canéjan, Gradignan, Léognan, Martillac, Mérignac, Pessac, Saint-Médard-d'Eyrans, Talence and Villeneuve-d'Ornon. Before the classification as a separate appellation in 1987, which André Lurton successfully tried to obtain, the area was called Haut-Graves. Around the town of Pessac, the Clairet was produced in the Middle Ages.

The dry white wines from Sauvignon...

The red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to eat the berries, which are very sweet when fully ripe. However, the name can also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to that of the bird. There are more than 60 synonyms, which testify the worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Bigney, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Hebigney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni, Merlot Nero, Merlot Noir, Merlott, Merlou, Picard, Pikard, Plant Médoc,...
