Tasting (February 7th, 2015 – Marc Quertinier, oenologist): Ruby young colour with garnet-red glints. Rich, complex, balsamic, powerful, gamey nose at first that refined with the air, while keeping its mineral powerful (hot pebbles), typical Cabernet. Young and still shy in the mouth. An elegant wine, restrained, tight, young (one still bite the Cabernet berry). Mineral finish (flint). A young and promising wine.
Serving temperature: 13°C.
Harmonises with: roast shoulder of young lamb, pheasant with cabbage, roasted partridge with juniper, hare with ceps stew
