Merlot

The Merlot grape variety, the “flesh of red wine”

Merlot is a popular red wine grape variety known for producing medium to full-bodied red wines. It is one of the primary grapes used in Bordeaux wine blends, particularly on the right bank of the Gironde River in France. Merlot wines are characterized by their softness, roundness, and fruity flavors, often with notes of plum, cherry, and herbs. Outside of Bordeaux, Merlot is also widely grown in regions such as Italy (Tuscany), California, Chile, and Australia, where it is often made into varietal wines or blended with other grape varieties. It's a versatile grape that can produce a range of styles from easy-drinking to more complex and age-worthy wines.

Merlot is a popular red wine known for its smoothness and versatility, making it a great choice for pairing with various foods. Here are some classic food pairing suggestions for Merlot:

  • Red Meat: Merlot pairs excellently with red meats such as beef, lamb, and venison. Try serving it with a juicy steak, roast beef, or grilled lamb chops.
  • Poultry: Merlot also complements poultry dishes, including roasted chicken, duck, or turkey. Its medium body and soft tannins complement the flavors of poultry well.
  • Pasta: Merlot pairs nicely with pasta dishes, particularly those with tomato-based sauces like marinara or Bolognese. It also goes well with creamy pasta dishes featuring mushrooms or cheese.
  • Cheese: Merlot pairs well with a variety of cheeses, including mild to medium-hard cheeses like Gouda, Cheddar, and Manchego. It can also complement soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert.
  • Vegetarian Dishes: Merlot can be enjoyed with vegetarian dishes such as roasted vegetables, mushroom risotto, or eggplant parmesan. Its fruity flavors and smooth texture can enhance the earthy flavors of these dishes.
  • Charcuterie: Merlot pairs beautifully with charcuterie boards featuring cured meats like prosciutto, salami, and chorizo, as well as assorted cheeses, nuts, and olives.
