This wine offers a wide, harmonious range of aromas: red berries, particularly cherries, very floral garrigue aromas, lime blossom and toasty, resinous notes. The wine is dense, well-rounded and fresh on the palate, with a lingering, roasted almond finish.
Considering its structure and freshness, this wine may be enjoyed with a wide range of dishes and can stand up well to hot, spicy foods.
To do full justice to the wine, it should be served at a temperature of around 18 °C.
