AOC Côtes de Bordeaux
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this 2016 has an intense ruby colour full of promise. Just as intense, the bouquet gives a large place to breeding notes (spices, roasted coffee), but a ripe fruit begins to appear in the background. The round and supple palate, however, has enough substance to give hope for a blooming fruit and liquorice notes. The long and tannic finale is a good omen.
Perfect with a roast beef with small onions or a grilled pork topped with honey.
