Color: deep ruby red, clear and bright.
Bouquet: very pronounced fruit. Notes of redcurrants, cherries and plums that give freshness to the wine and meld with mineral, ethereal, spicy and vanilla-like hints.
Flavor: rich, fresh and well-balanced fruit. The concentration of the dry extract is notable and admirably set off by considerable tannic structure, very lively acidity and a level of alcohol that ensure good ageing potential. The retro-olfactory sensations echo those on the nose. This is a long, fresh, concentrated and very elegant wine.
Suited for ageing: it has a long future ahead of it.
Combinations: red meats, game, dry-textured, mature cheeses made with low-fat milk.
Serve at: 16-18° C
