Tasting notes

Often described as a “Baby Châteauneuf du Pape”, this wine is rich, complex, yet approachable. We find red and dark fruits, cherries, spices and licorice on the nose and palate

Food pairing

This wine is perfect with a juicy, succulent rib eye steak with mushrooms, and garlic potatoes or Italian inspired dishes such as lasagna, or chicken Milanese served with tomato pasta. This wine also marries very well with hard, aged cheeses, such as Comté
