Roc Rouge Merlot (now under Eclat d'Oc label) has a powerful and surprisingly intense nose of plum, stewed black fruit and cherry. Intensely flavoured with ripe fruit, plum and some spicy, vegetal notes. Well structured, with soft tannins and toothsome fresheness, it is an amazing wine for the price.
VAL DES PINS, VIGNERONS DE BÉNOVIE, Boissières
Val des Pins is a great source of reliable, well-made and honest Southern wines. It is a medium-sized coop, founded in 1981, located in the Hérault with vineyards holdings stretching over sun-drenched hillsides and running from the Cévennes Mountains foot-hills to slopes overlooking the Mediterranean.
The cooperative principles are based on delivering quality wines while respecting traditions, nature and the environment. The wines are extremely well-made and show unexpected intensity and purity of fruit. Perfectly digestible and balanced by bright freshness, their quality-price ratio are simply unbeatable.
