The palate displays sweet red and dark berry fruit with nuances of dark chocolate and earthy, gravelly notes contributing a slight savoury edge to the wine. From a season which delivered excellent concentration and elegance, the silky palate offers great length and balance with fine tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak.
An ideal match to succulent slow-cooked meats or crumbly aged cheeses.
