TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Ruby red with crimson tints. Dense and brilliant.

Bouquet: Fine and open with hints of lovely fresh black fruit (blackcurrant, plums). Floral and vanilla scents when swirled around the glass.

Palate: Well structured and balanced. Driven by fresh fruit initially, then by the finesse and volume of toasted and liquorice flavours. A long-lasting finish with floral (wisteria, peony) and toasted hints.

SERVING SUGGESTION

This Saint-Estèphe is ideal served with game birds, duck, roast goose and cheese.
