Jammy Git Merlot 2012. Côtes de Bourg, Bordeaux.
“Jammy Git” is the name of our own range of wines and is a playful nod to the serendipity that led us into ownership of BinTwo nearly five years ago and the general, all-round jamminess that we have broadly enjoyed since. Customers often comment about how lucky I am to do what I do. And, whilst it’s often hard work, I can’t disagree.
Our first Jammy Git wine is this cracking Merlot made by my good friend Mark Hellyar. Mark took the very best of his hand-harvested Merlot from 2012 to make just one barrel of this carefully crafted, limited edition wine. Aged for 14 months in a two-year-old French oak barrel this cracking wine has developed great character. Plummy, slightly smoky with a rich, soft texture and lingering finish.
It’s a very easy-drinking wine that would go down well on it’s own or with a few nibbles. Equally it has enough about it to pair well with food. I like mine with barbequed meats, but to be honest, I love it so much I’d be happy to match it to a bag of Monster Munch – it’s a wine I’ll turn to whatever the occasion. I’ll have plenty of opportunity to try out more adventurous food pairings as I like it so much I bought all 600 bottles that Mark made. You’d best hurry though as it’s been flying out by the glass and by the bottle and we’ve sold a third of it already!
