Chateau Guilhem Pot de Vin Merlot 2019
Fifth generation Chateau Guilhem owner, Bertrand Gourdou was searching through an old desk when he came across a label made by his grandfather in the early 1970’s. The wine was called "Le pot-de-vin" which, translates to "the bribe", an audacious play on words for a wine label. Today, Bertrand crafts this biodynamically farmed 100% Merlot in concrete tanks built by his grandfather. This is a natural wine that undergoes spontaneous fermentation with no additives. Pot de Vin is unpretentious yet generous with charismatic red fruit. It should be a staple in every home.
