In a nutshell:
A fruity and fleshy crowd pleaser from the Dordogne in southwest France
The name of this wine The Perigord Goose is wonderfully evocative of the beautiful part of France from where it comes. Most of the vineyards are, in fact, on the limestone rich hills of Bergerac which are well suited to producing plump and ripe Merlots such as this. On the palate it's full of ripe, soft and round red berry fruit with just a hint of toastiness and vanilla. It's balanced by a subtle light tannin structure and nicely judged acidity making it a very easily enjoyable wine.
When to drink:
Very approachable and drinkable, it's a perfect glugger and a good match to red meats, poultry and mature hard cheeses.
