TASTING NOTES: A bewitching wine which gently overcomes you. Its uniqueness emerges in a particular way with a diverse but lively structure of tannins and with its strong and intensely savoury taste. This version of a densely ruby coloured Merlot, so rich with the sweet juice of black currant and candied violet which alternates with thyme and lavender, cannot pass unnoticed either by the palate of a refined taste or by that of an enthusiastic novice. It is a multi-faceted and intriguing red wine which combines the pleasure of tannin with an extraordinary persistence of taste.

MATCHING: Although it can so easily be drunk on its own, its elegance renders it appropriate with white meat even when cooked with a sauce of considerable flavour, or else with some delicate fish cooked without lemon or even with baked vegetables.
