WineIncognito Tasting Contest judges about Cru Lermont Merlot 2015

Quite a complex flavour (but it could have been even more complex), with a medium-plus intensity, varietal and tertiary flavours are in equal parts, raspberry, strawberry, red sour cherry, dark cherry, black plums, and chocolate. Well-balanced. A higher-than-average finish. 90/100.

Vladislav Gratsiansky, sommelier, about Cru Lermont Merlot 2013

Colour: red terracotta. Plum and blackberry in the nose meet vanilla and jam tones; delicate hints of animal notes and fresh milk. Palate: berrylike and jammy, with tender tones of sweet paprika and a creamy note. Acidity behaves delicately, keeping the balance, and it ends the aftertaste. The wine has a complex flavour and compound taste with a good balance between them.
