AOC GRAVES ROUGE
Carré D’As is a full-bodied voluptuous red wine. It’s generous on the palate with tannins that have already begun to soften. Balance is excellent thanks to a successfully preserved freshness and perfectly ripe grapes. A youthful wine, it offers aromas of very dark fruit, such as blackcurrants and some lightly roasted notes.
Full-flavoured dishes, meat in wine sauce, or poultry cooked with wild mushrooms. It’s also excellent in the summer with grilled food, served a few degrees cooler. At the end of the meal it makes a fine accompaniment to well-matured cheeses.
