Classic Left Bank Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The wine is bright ruby, the color is deep but still transparent.
The scent comes first with intense prunes and black currants, then softens and gives way to light tones of blackberries and blueberries. In the mouth, the wine is dry and warm, with a soft freshness and a slightly mineral finish. The aftertaste is pleasant and light, insistently calling for continuation.
Food pairings: Goes very well with steak or prosciutto. Perhaps, it will come in handy for mature mountain cheeses with a rich taste and smell.
Serving temperature: 16 - 18°C.
