More about this wine from Pays d'Oc, France
Croix des Vents wines are named after a compass, a symbol of the four winds. It is so called because these wines are produced in the far South of France, between the Mediterranean coast and the Cevennes.

The Pays d'Oc region benefits from the Mediterranean climate which provides hot, dry summers for a perfect maturity. On the other side, the Montagne Noire brings enough humidity and cool temperatures for the vineyards to produce grapes packed with rich, fruity notes yet with balanced structure and freshness. Ripe grapes are essential to produce a good Merlot, which is why the winemaker looks for the perfect time to harvest each particular vineyard.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

Serve salmon fillets cooked in parchment paper with herbs, lemon, and vegetables. The delicate flavors of the salmon and the aromatic herbs enhance the wine's smoothness and ripe fruit notes, creating an elegant and flavorful pairing.
