About the wine

Triumphant Virgile brings smooth, juicy Merlot from Languedoc
  • Virgile's signature style - smooth, juicy and dangerously easy drinking - is at its prime with this Merlot from France's sunny & warm Mediterranean shelf 

  • He does Languedoc proud with this black cherry and plum-rich vintage. Once the initial explosion settles, a flood of sweet creamy vanilla swoops in, with just a touch of woodsmoke in the finish

  • Give a nod to Virgile's love of organic and sustainable winemaking and pair this Merlot with spicy chili, full of roasted veggies straight from the garden. If steak happens to sneak it way in, then so be it...

Best before
It’s to drink now till next year or year after.

Serving advice
Let it breathe few minutes before serving then drink it

Food match
Virgile Joly Merlot can be drink with or without food. It will be appreciated with red meat dishes – grilled or cooked with tomato sauce. It will go perfectly with complex dishes like a chili – full of spices, or simply with different pizzas for example pepperoni.

Meet the winemaker - Virgile Joly

Years Angel-funded: 2013-18

  • Virgile Joly is the poster boy for organic viticulture in the south of France. There's even a novel about his early days when he manually bottled his first vintage with a funnel (imagine filling 3000 bottles that way?!)
  • A ridiculously talented winemaker with rave reviews from Jancis Robinson and other European critics, Virgile is living his best life in the Languedoc.
  • Thanks to Angel funding, Virgile was able to expand his production. You were the investors that helped bring his world-class wines to a global audience!
