Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red fruit (cherry and raspberry) mixed with floral fragrances on an array of delicate spices. Concentrated and powerful. Elegant texture. Deep. Beautiful fruit combination. Dense, well-structured and powerful. Well- integrated and beautiful tannic structure and Elegant oak-note. Complex and impressing aftertaste.

Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
