The Art of Wine series features iconic fine art images. The edges of the canvas of the Starry Night are said to represent the dimensions of Van Gogh’s bedroom window. We see the church steeple in the town below, and near to us the top of a large cypress tree. The thickly textured pigment carves out bright spaces for the stars and a glowing moon in a swirling sky, defined and exaggerated in a frenzy of paint. Merlot grapes are grown on silt and clay soils in the eastern region of the Pays d’OC, along the Canal du Midi, where the sunny days and cool nights produce ripe grapes with flavour concentration and freshness. Ruby in colour with purple hints, this wine has vibrant notes of plum and cassis, with hints of spice and chocolate from oak. Juicy and ripe on the palate, with supple tannins on the finish.
