Les Marcottes Domaine de Pellehaut
- Cotes de Gascogne, Southern France, France
- Domaine de Pellehaut
- Merlot, Tannat
From a wonderful property, 70% Tannat, 30% Merlot, from very old vines and with 18 months in oak. Delicious deep, rich fruit but fresh and juicy. Almost South American in style.
A sustained red with slightly purple tints. The nose is intense, with spicy notes of juniper and nutmeg adding the crowning touch to the all-pervading black fruit aromas (cassis and blackberry). On the palate, the frank attack recedes to reveal a silky, creamy texture. An easy-to-drink, versatile wine that will go well with many foods.

Owned by the Beraut family for 300 years, Domaine De Pellehaut is managed by Brothers Mathieu and Martin Béraut. Starting out as Armagnac producers and continuing so under the name Chateau De Pellehaut producing several premium Armagnacs including the much prized and highly regarded Reserve De Gaston named after their Father.
