tasting :

Color: Beautiful purple colour with bright highlights. The colour is dense and deep

Good with: This wine requires fleshy and tasty cookings such as grilled red meat or simmered for a long time : a (thick) Charolaise steak seared in a pan and accompanied by a good juice and few "giroles sautées” in butter, A young roast pigeon "on the chest", some rats and candied cloves of garlic, A candied beef cheek (for a long time) in wine lees and served with a large cannelloni gratin with parmesan
