Tasting hints :
Luminous, majestic, intense garnet colour. On the nose the rich bouquet displays crystallized red fruits and a smoky tinge which intensifies with spices, Garrigue fragrances and vanilla sugar. The fleshy attack which is both well shed and well balanced, becomes increasingly powerful; the tannins which are wonderfully ripe, will reach their epitome in a few years time. Aromas of black cherry, liquorice, and roasted coffee beans, blosom on the palate with a papper finish. A grand wine to math with a duck breast or thrushes..
Consumption hints :
Traditional cooking, game, red meat and cheese.
