a.o.p. Touraine le Père Trinqu'fort

Product Availability: Yes  /  

Warm and heady with a hint of vanilla, this wine is definitely worth saving for your special occasions.






You'll find this intensely dark red wine has a fantastically confident bouquet with notes of vanilla, caramel, liquorice followed by blackberry with the slightest hint of leather. The palate is wonderfully weighty, altogether round with a sweet, complex touch of woody undertones. Sturdy and luscious, this wine would marry beautifully with rib of beef and potatoes baked in the ashes of an open fire. Pour it into a carafe first for maximum flavour.
