Tasting notes

A deep, luscious, Pomerol colour but with ripe red berries on the nose with a hint of chocolate. The palate moves towards the darker jammy fruits that the colour indicates, with a hint of liquorice and vanilla. A juicy, round wine with smooth tannins and a clean refreshing finish.

Food pairing

Grilled red meats, game and poultry. Excellent with cheese
