Tasting notes


An expressive and fruity bouquet, with scents of Morello cherry mingling with raspberry and hints of smoked caramel. Upon swirling there are floral notes of peony as well as pepper with liquorice. The attack is fresh and well balanced and gives way to full-bodied and slightly toasted flavours of fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry).

Serve with grilled ribs, a pen-fried tournedos or well-aged cheese.
