Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With a purple hue this Grand Cru exhales aromas of cassis, saffron and earthiness. In the mouth the tannins envelop a lovely cherry fruitiness and are powerful yet silky.
Ratings
93 points: Wine Enthusiast "Cellar Selection" - "A firm, powerful wine, its tannins still very dominant. Acidity is a factor, along with deep red-plum fruit. Some sweetness will develop in the next several years, although this concentrated and complex wine will also have a solid core of dry, structured tannin. Age for at least 5 years."
Food Pairing Notes
Wild boar - roasted beef - roasted quail - duck "à l'orange" - mature cheeses
