2 Stars Guide Hachette 2014 Nice ruby colour. The nose reveals black fruits and violet hints. The mouth is full-bodied, ropy and smooth, on ripe tannins. Serve between 17-18° C with grilled rump steak or roast beef with seasonal vegetables. It will perfectly season a game terrine and nice platter of free range cheese. Ageing capacity : 8-10 years
