Wine
tasting :

Colour: Deep purple colour with purple tints

Nose: The nose is intense. Black fruits dominate with notes of blackcurrant, blueberry and undergrowth. Toasted and spicy aromas add complexity to the wine

Palate : The mouth is juicy, marked by aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants. The evolution is round and generous. The tannins are dense and powerful. Great length in the mouth with finely nutty aromas

Good with: This gourmet and fruity wine calls for a cuisine with melting textures : like a fillet of duckling roasted in a poelon accompanied by pan-fried porcini mushrooms and chanterelles. Rack of lamb gently confit with a crust of herbs. This melting flesh accompanied by glazed carrots, courgette and panfried eggplant will go well with the gourmet texture of the wine
