Tasting notes:

The first nose reveals aromas of black fruit, especially blackberry. Then the complex bouquet reveals notes of violet and Sichuan pepper in particular. On the palate, there is black cherry and toasted notes. The attack is unctuous and is extended by a round structure with volume and a lot of freshness that give it a nice length.


Tasting suggestions:

The complexity and elegance of this wine allow it to be paired with very tasty dishes. It will go well with a duck breast or a stew (beef or game) but also roasted poultry. Do not hesitate to taste it with some cheeses matured like a Munster, it can reserve nice surprises. The serving temperature should be between 17 and 18°C to let the wine express the complexity of its aromas and velvety texture.
