OR VALENCAY ROUGEWith its glossy garnet-red robe, this wine is lovely and intense to the nose, complex with aromas of raspberry and the slightest hint of pepper. It is full-bodied on the palate with floral notes (peony), and the peppy undertone rounds off to a fruity finish. This wine is easy to drink, marrying well with a BBQ in the garden or a more elaborate dinner with friends of seasonal salad, veal and oven-baked cheese and vegetable dishes.
