Chichery Merlot 2011
Over the years I've made my view of Merlot sufficiently clear: I don't like it. Of course every rule has its exceptions. While this red from Languedoc still has traces of the dreaded,slightly bitter aftertaste, it's not overwhelming and, this apart, it exhibits strongly defined notes of red berries with underlying licorice. At $9.99 I would not consider it a favorite, but if you like Merlot, this would be one to try.
