A degree holder of oenology, intern of Ch.

Tasting Note 鑒賞:
The wine is left on the lees without racking. This delivers a Merlot that no longer reminds us of its classic fresh fruit aroma, but obtains a rather more \'jammy\' nuance, an aroma hinting at dried fruits. Some Merlots tend to be rather heavier, as is the case with the Movia Merlot It requires our full attention in order to completely feel and understand the wine. Pairs outstandingly with a good cheese. Definitely a course dinner wine. Also suitable for lunches. Enjoying a bottle of this wine requires time, as the wine sometimes requires between half an hour to an hour after opening to fully come to life.
這佳釀是連酒渣一起陳化, 沒有沉積換桶除渣的步驟, 莫飛雅的美樂不會像一般乾果般的香氣. 一些美樂會頗為沉實, 但對於莫飛雅的美樂來說, 必須要付出全副專注來感知和瞭解這酒, 最適合配襯晚餐大盤的酒, 午餐也宜, 享同這酒需時, 起碼要半個或一個小時來醒酒.
