Tasting (February 7th, 2015 – Marc Quertinier, oenologist): Ruby colour, young, dense. Juicy nose of ripe grapes, fresh, young. Still the feel of the powdered note of the grape’s skin. A lively wine; rare in 2009! A sumptuous, tense wine in the mouth, accompanied with a fine sweetness and jammy aromas of ripe fruits. A round and full wine.
Serving temperature: 13-14°C.
Harmonises with: lamb stew, coq au vin, truffled hen.
