On the red side, B&G offers an elegant, claret style in the '95 Vin de Pays d'Oc merlot. It hits the right notes with its soft,chocolate-scented fruit, and it finishes with pleasant earthy tannins rather than the sweetness you'll find in many merlots in this price range. B&G is back, offering reliable French wine at fair prices, a major accomplishment in and of itself.
Light tannins provide a chocolate-textured richness to this soft Merlot - good choice for burgers or pepperoni pizza.
A dry red wine from the Languedoc with a dark ruby color, fruity aromatics, and soft flavors on the palate.
Exploding with raspberry and blackberry aromas and notes of pepper and spice. Light-bodied and balanced; perfectly accompanies beef and cheese.
A straightforward, medium-bodied Merlot, with earthy smoked bacon notes mingling nicely with plum and sweet berrylike flavors. It is crisp, with moderate tannins and a pleasant finish.
