Continuing further down south, and moving into Fer Servadou country, Fer is unlike Cabernet or Merlot, being lighter-bodied, softer, fruitier, and yet retaining a certain rustic astringency that makes it fun to drink and easy to pair with food. In addition to Fer, which makes up some 80% of any Marcillac, one finds little plots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Jurançon Noir in the region. This standard blend also produces some very attractive rosé wines from Marcillac.
