MENTIONS

TASTING

Beautiful deep garnet color.

A slightly shy, fruity nose (black fruit) which develops in the air towards smoky, mineral notes,

touches of exotic wood (sandalwood) and some signs of evolution of old leather and undergrowth.

Dense wine under development. Grainy, fresh and crunchy finish. He is coming…

Harmonies: chicken with truffles, braised beef cheeks, pork tenderloin in herb crust,

fillet of beef with thyme and candied grenailles…
