A very pleasant ruby colour. Elegant and round in the palate with a fine lingering. Well structured and full bodied, this wine represents well the great character and the authentic personality of the great red Bordeaux wines. Blended with mostly Merlot noir it’s elegant and harmonious and a sound value to share with friends. It goes well with grilled meat, veal stew, beef tartare, stews, poultry and some cheeses.
