Product Availability: Yes  /  

This highly distinctive wine is made from one of the oldest grape varieties in the Cher Valley.






To the eye, it exhibits a deep garnet-red robe. To the nose, its reveals intricate aromas of black fruits with hints of violet and liquorice, toasted notes and a dash of chocolate. On the palate it is powerful and buttery with an indulgently long finish. A wine for laying down no more than a few years, ideally paired with stuffed poultry dishes, game meat and strong cheese during special occasions or why not corporate get-togethers.
