Description: Cherry red color, with hints of ruby. The nose releases notes of cherry, blackcurrant raspberry, wild strawberry, pomelo, sloe, and redcurrants with touches of mint, licorice, pepper, leather, and tobacco. In the mouth, the attack is smooth and forthright, with fleshy fruit and crisp, fairly structured tannins. The finish is fresher, with hints of menthol and licorice, sometimes evolving to spicy aromas. Serving temperature: 14-16°C.
Food Pairing: Its fleshy fruitiness and crisp structure make it a great partner for convivial dishes like Boeuf Bourguignon, shepherd’s pie, chicken with herbs. This more powerful wines pair well with filet of pork, pan-fried chicken with mushrooms, and steak with a pepper sauce. In terms of cheeses, try it with mature fresh goat cheese, morbier, a good quality cheddar or Oxford Isis!
