Tasting notes

An unctuous garnet colour, very dark and dense. The nose is forwardly fruity but complex, a bouquet combining cooked red fruits, cherries with aromas of leather and smoke. The palate is full-bodied, supple and balanced with hints of prune and cherry.

Red meats, game, exotic dishes (paella, couscous) but also cheeses
