A powerful, complex wine that combines citrus fruit and gun-flint aromas with hints of smokiness. On the palate, it also reveals candied fruit and roasted hazelnut aromas, sustained by its density and fleshiness, that linger on a fresh and very persistent finish.
This wine will achieve its full expression at a temperature of around 12 to 14 °C and is at its best if aerated and even decanted in its youth. Its strength means that it can accompany a wide range of dishes. Try serving it with fish in sauce, white meat or pressed cheeses. Or how about something more original, such as a chicken tajine with preserved lemons.
