Suitability for cultivation and agronomic production

  • Merlot N is a moderate to strong vigor variety with a tendency of growing water and new shoots.
  • Its semi-erect horizontal growth requires sufficient trellissing.
  • Good fertility and preference is given to short pruning.
  • In certain climatic conditions, there is a risk of coulure.
  • Merlot N is well suited to clay-limestone terroirs.
  • This variety is rather sensitive to winter and spring frost (early bud burst) and would appear to be not very adapted to intense drought conditions.

Sensitivity to diseases and pests

  • Merlot N is particularly sensitive to downy mildew (on inflorescences and clusters), to leaf hoppers and burls.
  • It is likewise rather sensitive to grey rot.
  • On the other hand, it is not very sensitive to oidium and flavescence dorée and is seldom affected by wood disease.

Technological potential

  • Grape clusters are small to moderate size, winged and berries are moderate size.
  • Merlot N produces round, powerful, rich in alcohol and colorful wines with relatively low acidity.
  • These full-bodied and structured wines with rather supple tannins can be matured in wood barrels.  
  • Complex and elegant aromas.
