Tasting notes

Very intense almost black colour. A nose marked by aromas of dark cherry and red fruits, especially blackcurrant. On the palate, this robust wine stands out for its aromatic complexity. Unctuously long finish.

Food pairing

This wine will go perfectly with red meats in sauce and game
