Tasting Notes: The splendid weather permitted rigorous plot by plot selection for this vintage, allowing both grape varieties to achieve progressive and optimal ripeness. The harvested berries were plump and juicy, with generous fruit and tight skins, yet silky and elegant tannins. Ageing in French oak barrels for two months rounds this wine out to a harmonious and well-integrated whole-bodied wine.
Food Pairing: Hot game pies and hearty stews. This is great with mashed potatoes, gratin dauphinoise, mushrooms and truffles.
