TRWC Reserve Merlot, 2020 (Case) – Spring 2023
£6 per case goes directly to YOUR club/charity.
This is the Cuisset’s higher level red wine which has been their mainstay organic red for many years. We are yet to meet a red wine lover who has tried this wine and has not thought this is rucking marvellous! It has a deep nose of red berries, ripe blackcurrant and mocha. Silky and smooth on the tongue with a great bouquet of plum and vanilla with a long and glorious finish, so “try” it…….often. Serve before, during or after watching rugby and also with meat, barbecues and strong cheese.
Early signs and tastings suggest that the 2019 vintage will be as fantastic as our popular 2018 Merlot Reserve (which sold out very quickly last summer) and should be with us here in the UK in April/May 2022 and will then be ready for drinking. Get your order in now to avoid missing out.

Close to its more famous neighbour Bordeaux, the Bergerac region (also known as Périgord and Dordogne) is not well represented in the UK nowadays and we think that needs changing. The vines of the Cuisset family are centred around the small village of Monestier where vines have been planted since the Middle Ages (1053). Guy Cuisset and his sons, Gabriel and Julien, have helped to turn the whole estate over to organic production and are now adopting new modern strategies in the vineyards and cellar which included ditching the reliance on the old AOC Bergerac rules (dating from the 1950s) as the brothers deemed these unsuitable for today’s climate, market and organic vine growing opportunities and the wines they are now producing are high quality. There is further information on these new techniques here. We think red wine fans will love this smooth yet bold Merlot reserve.

You can choose from red, white, rose or a mixed subscription where you will receive one case of each in rotation. Our subscriptions run for 18 months and all subscribers are able to buy the personalised home rugby wine rack at the discounted price of £99 in their choice of club or country colours.
