Tasting notes

This wine has intense red and black fruits, lots of spices and garrigues (herbs from Provence), soft, elegant tannins, developing complex arromas (licorice, truffle and dark chocolate) with aging

Food pairing

This wine deserves to be served with a slow cooked meal such as a Daube (Southern French casserole) or a beef burgundy. This wine is lovely with cheeses, such Camebert or Beaufort
