  • Tasting notes

    A magnificent garnet color with ruby reflections.
    The nose reveals notes of black fruits as well as some very delicate floral nuances (violet, rose). Lightly toasted notes like coffee add character and depth.
    In the mouth, a very beautiful harmony. An underlying freshness supports the wine and brings a committed finish with intense tannins that bring depth.

  • Food pairing

    With this profile of pulpy red wine, a nice fish with texture and a little flesh, all embellished with red fruits to get the gluttony of this wine. Imagine a monkfish just braised in gravy accompanied by red currants in butter to bring just the right acidity, or a rabbit simmered in a casserole dish with reduced juice and grilled carrot tops.
