Tasting Notes
Clear, very intense bright ruby red color, consistent.
On the nose, the range of aromas is wide and complex. Pot pourri of red flowers, followed by notes of dark berries, but also notes of fruit jam. There are notes of precious woods, but also spicies reminiscent of cinnamon, nuances of undergrowth and a very light balsamic finish.
The sip is structured, the important tannin is well smooth and linear. Intense and of fine quality, an aftertaste of ripe fruit remains.
It is recommended in combination with structured dishes based on game.
