Tasting notes:

The initial nose reveals dark fruit, particularly blackberry, aromas. The complex bouquet then opens out onto violet and Sichuan pepper notes.

Black cherry flavours and hints of roasting are found on the palate. The unctuous attack leads to a well-rounded structure combining volume, freshness and a pleasing persistence.


Tasting suggestions:

This complex, elegant wine may be served with highly flavourful dishes, such as duck breast fillet, beef or game stew, or roast poultry. Or why not try it with certain mature cheeses, such as Munster? You may be pleasantly surprised.

Best served at between 17 and 18°C to allow the wine to fully express its complex aromas and velvety texture.
