Crystalline garnet color.

Amazing nose. Wild and airy, lively. Wild berries (sloe), very aromatic: lemongrass, tarragon, green anise. Smells

of soot and ashes (cold smoke), carbon.

In the mouth, supple, round, light, fresh with a nice grain of tannin. On aeration, notes of fruit in brandy, spices, incense and soot.

Harmonises with: to drink on country food, prepared by the fire. Duck rillettes, stuffed peppers, Basque chicken, moussaka, snails à la bordelaise, carrot beef, Pont-l'Evêque, Avesnes dumpling...
