The opinion of our oenologists
The colour of this wine is deep red with purple reflections. The nose expresses notes of blackcurrant and wild strawberry. On the palate, the wine is very well balanced, with acidity that perfectly tempers the ripe fruit flavours. A wine which will accompany a nice rib on the bone, a roasted partridge or a pigeon with peas.
