Les Petits Clement Merlot Duras Igp Cotes du Tarn 2018

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from a shop in Cambridgeshire [www.smilinggrape.com] It is an IGP,what used to be called Vin de Pays from the Tarn valley in south-west France.It consists of 70% merlot and 30% duras,a grape unique to the Tarn valley and which has nothing to do with the Cotes de Duras appellation further north.I started the bottle last night with my supper of roast pork.It is a nice ruby colour with a hint of purple.This is a wine with plenty of fruit [think plum,cherry and raspberry] and soft tannins but not a lot in terms of structure.However it was pleasant and easy drinking and went well with the pork.
