comments by J.P RENARD tasting trainer at the BIVB.
A wine with a classical ruby red robe, a pleasant nose of stone fruits (cherries, plums) which after breathing evolves towards wilder and more spicy aromas. The palate, dominated by still firm tannins, is excellently sustained and its length is very noticeable. Keeping this wine for 2 to 3 years should enable all its potential to be revealed.
It will then go well with terrines, poultry livers and white meats.
