Vintages Wine Panel: The vineyards for this fine Lurton venture in the Midi are located near the beautiful medieval city of Carcassonne. This area is within the Corbières AC which does not allow Merlot in the appellation’s wines. Thus, the Lurtons use the more generic Vin de Pays d’Oc for this pretty, fruit-forward Merlot. Many of the Midi’s best producers have used this designation over the years to create exceptional wines that flout the rules of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s ACs. My note: A juicy, purple quaffer that's delicious and full-bodied.

Domaine De Berlande Merlot food pairings: hamburger, pizza.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
