A mellow nose, with cherry, tobacco and spice aromas combined with scents of the garrigue. An easy-drinking, fresh wine.
Smooth and crisp on the palate, the wine offers a delightfully fresh finish.
The wine is still young and will further develop its garrigue aromas. In the meantime, it will benefit from aeration.
Enjoy it with grilled meats, especially lamb, and a wide range of other dishes (not too spicy). Ideal with Mediterranean dishes.
