Quick Facts

An old school Merlot with present tannins, fresh acidity and floral additions to its red and black fruit character. Great aging potential.

The Wine’s Story

Do you remember the old school Right Bank Bordeaux wines you tasted back in the days? Pencil shavings, cigar box made of fragrant cedar wood, herbaceous additions adding complexity to the red- and blackcurrant flavors, all framed by serious, grippy tannins and fresh, salivating acidity; you get the idea. Sadly these classics are mostly gone from Bordeaux, but we found an amazing alternative in Croatto’s Merlot Clàs.
