The Merlot "Jean d’Alibert" is one of the absolute favorite products of our customers. Why? Because it is soft, round and fruity, but not too heavy and is therefore so enjoyable to drink.
Traditional must fermentation followed by storage in wooden barrels for nine months.
The Chantovent cooperative in the south of France is a considerable size and works with 1,500 winemakers. Of course, many different wines are produced, a particularly popular wine being Jean d´Alibert. It is produced on a relatively small domain that also belongs to Chantovent, the "Domaine de Jouarres".
The large Languedoc region in the south of France has long been the supplier of bulk wines in Europe, even though there are the best conditions for the production of high-quality wines. Since the mid-1990s, winemakers have begun to rethink and produce high-quality, market-driven wines. The region lies directly on the Mediterranean Sea and stretches from Nîmes to Narbonne. The soils are diverse, but slate and limestone soils are often predominant. The climate is Mediterranean and the most common grape varieties are Carignan and Grenache. The Minervois is located in the Languedoc and is one of the oldest wine-growing regions in France.
