6x De Lucca Merlot Reserve 2011
Uruguay produces some of the world’s most exceptional wine and this classic Merlot Reserve from 2011 is a perfect representative. The delicious De Lucca Merlot Reserve is a fantastic bargain, its mature amber tone standing shoulder to shoulder with far older full-bodied Merlots of three times the price.
The vines of “De Lucca”, situated 35 kilometres inland, grow in an unspoiled ecosystem. Following the family wine-growing tradition started in 1906, the director and winemaker Reinaldo de Lucca farms his vines as naturally as possible, using no fertilisers or insecticides. This style of artisan production, with strict management that respects the ecosystem, makes it possible to obtain grapes of the highest quality.
Six months spent in oak barrels produces this full-bodied and well structured Merlot. On the nose is an intense, complex aroma of nuts and toasted almonds with hints of tobacco. On the palate is an aromatic, spicy and juicy wine, as a Merlot should be, with soft, rounded tannins. This delectable, elegant wine pairs best with lamb, thyme and rosemary at home. A wine perfect for Autumn.
Sommelier Damian Sanchez is currently serving with the Venison, Pumpkin, Williams Pear, truffle and Celeriac dish on the Gauthier Soho a la carte menu.
