Plaisir de Merle Grand Plaisir 2001 (review)

87 points

Paarl, South Africa. 14.5%

A bordeaux blend but with some shiraz. A shiny wine with tiny hints of crimson still. Big but quite concentrated. Syrupy with glycerol and some sweetness. Best with food. Quite impressive rather than fine. Lacks really exciting fruit or savoury characters.

Recommended. One of South Africa’s better wines.
